A LATHAM man will face court today after police seized MDMA and other drugs worth $150,000 from his home, making it one of the largest single seizures of MDMA in the territory.
Around 3.20pm police executed a search warrant at the house in Latham and seized approximately 1.5 kilograms and 250 gel caps of a white powder suspected to be MDMA, 120 grams of a substance suspected to be methylamphetamine, several items of drug paraphernalia and other items relating to the sale and supply of illicit drugs.
Detectives also seized a manual pill press, the first seizure of a pill press by ACT police in more than a decade, and three vehicles valued at approximately $100 000 suspected to be used in the sale of illicit drugs.
The drugs have an estimated street value of over $150 000 making it one of the largest single seizures of MDMA in the ACT.
The 27-year-old man was taken to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with several drug related offences.
He is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court later today.
