POLICE answering an unrelated call have unearthed a box lab at a Malvern Dr address, Moore Park Beach, locating chemicals and property consistent with those used in the production of drugs.

"As a result a crime scene was established and guarded overnight until the Illicit Laboratory Investigation Team arrived," he said.

Det Snr Const Darney said a man in his late 40s was arrested and charged with and possessing property suspected of being used for the production of dangerous drugs and permitting a place to be used for commission of drug offences.

The man was released on bail to appear in court at a later date.
