A man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today (23 August) on drug trafficking offences after police seized more than $11,000 worth of methylamphetamine.

On Thursday (22 August), ACT Policing officers, AFP Specialist Response Group Tactical Response and Canine Unit executed search warrants on a man, his vehicle and his Crace residence.

Police allege that during the search, a substance believed to be methylamphetamine with a street value of $11,250 was found and seized.

Police also seized a Holden HSV utility, a conducted energy weapon, substances believed to be steroids, $13,025 cash and additional property suspected of being stolen.

The 32-year-old man has been charged with trafficking a controlled drug, possession of property suspected of being the proceeds of crime, driving while disqualified, diving under the influence of drugs, and driving a vehicle with a number plate issued for another vehicle.
