MANDURAH detectives seized a significant amount of methamphetamine, ecstasy pills, marijuana and cash from a Secret Harbour address this morning.

Detective Sergeant Carlos Correia said the drugs had a street value of around $65,000.

He said it was concerning that an 11-year-old child was in the house at the time.

“I can’t remember the last time we seized an amount like this down here,” Det Sgt Correia said.

They seized about $700 in cash, 150 to 200 pills, one-and-a-half kilograms of marijuana and six ounces of methamphetamine.

A 30-year-old woman is expected to appear in Perth Magistrates Court tomorrow charged with possessing methamphetamine with intent to sell or supply, possessing MDMA with intent to sell or supply, possessing cannabis with intent to sell and supply, and unlawful possession of cash.

A 33-year-old man will appear on the same charges, with the added charge of possessing unlicensed ammunition.
