Police are claiming a major victory in the war against drugs following the arrest of two men after a car was stopped on the Hume Highway at Penrose.

 

The vehicle was stopped earlier in the week and a search located a suitcase with numerous containers filled with a white crystalline substance believed to be methylamphetamine or 'ice'.

 

Police say the value of the haul is estimated to be more than seven million dollars.

 

The weight of the substance was more than 14 kilograms.

 

Following the arrest of two men aged 28 and 34, police investigators executed search warrants on three properties, including one at Towrang.

 

Officers located an inactive large scale clandestine laboratory at Towrang including custom made equipment and police seized another container filled with 660 grams of ice.

 

Also discovered at the Towrang property were a 12-guage shotgun and ammunition.

 

The registered firearm was seized because it was not properly secured.
