EARLIER: Heroin, crystal methamphetamine and marijuana have been seized after police stopped a car travelling along Bridge St in Toowoomba.
Darling Downs District Tactical Crime Squad officer-in-charge Scott Stahlhut put a conservative street value on the haul of illicit and prescription drugs of $13,000.
Officers have charged a 32-year-old North Toowoomba man and a 37-year-old Caboolture man with offences including producing and possessing a dangerous drug as well as possessing cash suspected of being the proceeds of crime.
The vehicle was stopped about midday on Saturday on Bridge St near the grounds of the Toowoomba West Special School.
Senior Sergeant Stahlhut said about 10.5 grams of crystal methamphetamine, about a gram of heroin and about 185 grams of marijuana were seized in addition to prescription medication containing oxycodone hydrochloride.
He said investigations were also focused on whether or not the men had bikie gang links.
"The detection and apprehension of drug offenders remains a primary focus for investigators in the Toowoomba and greater Darling Downs police district," Snr Sgt Stahlhut said.
He regarded the interception and seizure as a positive for the Toowoomba community.
The charged men are due to front Toowoomba Magistrates Court today.
Police have lodged an objection to their bail.
Snr Sgt Stahlhut encouraged anyone with information on drug activity to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
"All information is treated with confidence."
