Police have searched harness racing properties across eastern Queensland as part of a match-fixing probe.

A 46-year-old man was charged with one count of match fixing by detectives from the racing crime squad attached to the state's Racing Integrity Commission.

The properties searched were at Limestone Ridges, Warwick, The Gap, Logan Village and Redcliffe.

Detectives seized mobile phones, computers, documents and clothing. The items will now be forensically examined.

The crime racing squad was set up in 2016 to investigate serious animal cruelty, match fixing and major and organised crime across all three codes of racing.

More details are expected to be revealed at a press conference in Brisbane today.
