When officers searched the vehicle they allegedly seized 600 MDMA tablets, 25g of liquid LSD, 600 LSD tablets, some cocaine, cannabis and $106,000 in cash.

They allege the passenger, a 22-year-old woman, was also found in possession of drugs.

The woman, meanwhile, was charged with resisting an officer in execution of duty and possessing a prohibited drug.

She's been granted conditional bail ahead of an appearance in Tweed Heads Local Court in July.
