A 28-year-old man was arrested during a police search of a Brisbane residence on Tuesday and will face the Caboolture Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

His arrest follows that of Francescos Giorgi, 40, who was charged over Mr Griffiths death following a raid of a Gold Coast hinterland property on March 24.

A 40-year-old Tingalpa man has also been charged in relation to the alleged murder.

Mr Griffiths, 35, was last seen alive in the Brisbane CBD in January, before his mother reported him missing on Australia Day.

Queensland Police believe Mr Griffiths was taken by car to a Coopers Plains transport depot but are yet to find a body.

His alleged death is linked to that of 35-year-old Andrew Christopher Walsh, whose body was found encased in concrete at the same transport depot last month.

The depot is the common link between the men, but detectives don’t believe Mr Griffiths’ remains are buried there.

Mr Walsh was reported missing by family in the north Queensland town of Mossman in January, however detectives say he was last seen alive at Slacks Creek in November.

David Lee Tan, 39, Dewald de Klerk, 27, and a 39-year-old Thagoona man have been charged with being an accessory after the fact of Mr Walsh’s murder and misconduct by interfering with his corpse.
