·1-min read

A NSW man and woman are accused of importing thousands of cannabis seeds and distributing them around Australia through the post.

The south coast pair imported the seeds from Europe and North America, police say.

Officers seized 76 packages of cannabis seeds from a post office in Vincentia last week, with a further 72 parcels seized from the same post office on Tuesday.

Police raided a St Georges Basin home on Wednesday and arrested a 35-year-old man and a 37-year-old woman.

Police say they found 9000 cannabis seeds, 1.2kg of cannabis leaves, magic mushrooms, electronic devices, cash and items consistent with the supply and sale of prohibited drugs.

The man was charged with 13 offences and the woman was charged with 12 offences.

They were granted conditional bail to appear in Nowra Local Court on August 16.
