ARRESTS for possessing the horror drug ice have soared by 250 per cent on the Gold Coast in less than a decade.

Police statistics show the shocking rise in use of the party drug which has been linked to violent attacks, psychosis, mental illness and dozens of thefts.

In the 2008-09 financial year just 372 people were caught with the drug but by the 2015-16 financial year that had risen to a staggering 1330.
