If it wasn’t so terrifying for the victims, the long series of Gold Coast crimes could almost be described as monotonous.

Forty-four hold-ups on the Coast so far this year, twenty this month alone.

A CONVICTED drug trafficker once dubbed the ‘Mrs Big of the drug world’ is back behind bars after being denied bail on fresh drug allegations.

Nana Puscas, 57, was arrested on Wednesday after a police raid netted almost half a kilogram of heroin at her Ormeau Road home.

Police also arrested 52-year-old Nicolae Tufis from NSW, who they allege was restocking her supplies.

Both suspects have been charged with trafficking, supplying and possessing a dangerous drug.
