Detectives also seized a manual pill press, the first seizure of a pill press by ACT Policing 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 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.
