As a result, a 32-year-old man from Mawson Lakes was arrested and charged with trafficking a large commercial quantity of cocaine.

Detectives from Serious and Organised Crime Branch subsequently searched a home at Mawson Lakes, where they found items which will be alleged afford additional evidence of the man’s involvement in commercial drug trafficking.

The man is due to face the Adelaide Magistrates Court today.
