Following the execution of a search warrant, approximately 420 grams of cocaine was discovered in the vehicle.

A 26-year-old man was arrested at the scene and subsequently charged with trafficking in a drug other than cannabis and unlicenced driving.

The drugs, his vehicle and a sum of cash were seized by police.

The man is expected to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today.
