Cobram police have seized a substantial amount of GHB, among other drugs, in morning raids in the town last week.
Two Cobram men have been charged with trafficking amphetamines and possessing cannabis and possessing GHB after police searched two residential properties on Friday.
It was part of an ongoing police investigation into the drug trafficking trade in the area and follows on from raids at Cobram and Koonoomoo properties a fortnight ago.
Senior Constable Sharon Lloyd of Cobram said information from the public again led to the search and subsequent charges — as it did in the previous raid.
Police found a substantial amount of GHB and cannabis and amphetamines at the properties last week.
‘‘(Drugs) are obviously a problem in our community and, as such, are high on our agenda,’’ Sen Const Lloyd said.
‘‘We will continue to focus our investigation on those who deal illegal substances.’’
Police deemed the raid a fortnight ago — which uncovered cannabis, amphetamines, a substantial amount of cash and a firearm — a win for the community and a major ‘‘disruption’’ of the cannabis trade in the area.
Sen Const Lloyd said the men would appear in court at a later date.
