The 26-year-old mum of three and her boyfriend Reece William Luscombe, who faces 23 charges including trafficking, unlawful possession of weapons and supplying dangerous drugs, were arrested earlier this year.

Police operation Romeo Suitcase targeted an alleged major drug syndicate spanning from the Gold Coast to Cairns over six months.

Mr Luscombe, 30, has been in pre-sentence custody since his arrest. Their cases were mentioned briefly in Mackay Magistrates Court today.

Brisbane-based solicitor Corey Cullen, who represents the couple, said paperwork had been filed for a registry committal, but he was unsure whether the documents had been processed.

Because of some of the charges, those matters must be dealt with in the Supreme Court.

A registry committal is the necessary administrative process to move a case to the higher court.

Once this has been processed, the Crown will have six months to indict the duo on some or all of the committed charges.

Both Ms Smith and Mr Luscombe had permission to not appear in court today.

Matters were adjourned to late November for mention.
