POLICE seized loaded guns and more than $200,000 of methamphetamine after raiding homes in Duncraig and Noranda last week.

Officers searched a Gilbert Road property in Duncraig and a Corderoy Way abode in Noranda on Tuesday.

They allege residents were in possession of 327g of methamphetamine and two loaded handguns.

While it’s important to note drug prices fluctuate dramatically, Australian Crime Commission chief executive Chris Dawson last year said methamphetamine was selling for as much as $650 a gram.

Police also seized more than $40,000 cash, cannabis, ammunition and two licensed rifles.

Investigators charged a 32-year-old Duncraig man with 11 offences including possession of drugs with intent to sell or supply and one count of having ready access to weapons and illegal drugs.

A 25-year-old Marmion woman was charged with drug possession.

A 34-year-old Noranda man was charged with possession of drugs with intent to sell or supply and failing to ensure safe keeping of a gun.
