LAUNCESTON police are confident that the seizure of methylamphetamine, worth an estimated $180,000, will have a significant impact on crime rates in the North.
Police searched a Swan Bay house in Windermere Road on Thursday.
Officers uncovered a Holden Rodeo utility which had been reported missing from Rokeby earlier that morning.
Police also found about 400 grams of methylamphetamine, two pistols, a .223 calibre rifle with ammunition, and almost $45,000 in cash.
Senior Sergeant Mike Gillies said that the search was part of Operation Agenda in the North.
Police made a major breakthrough in that campaign last month when they arrested three men in relation to drug-related shootings which had occurred in the Launceston area since May.
Senior Sergeant Gillies said the Swan Bay raid was one of many searches police have conducted for Operation Agenda.
``This one was particularly pleasing for us,'' he said.
``This means there will be a lot less methylamphetamine in the streets.''
Police are yet to determine the drug's origin.
Yesterday afternoon, Christopher John Humphreys, 31, of Swan Bay, appeared in the dock in Launceston Magistrates Court.
His charges include having trafficked in a controlled substance, motor vehicle theft and firearms-related offences.
Defence solicitor Adrian Hall made no bail application on behalf of his client.
Magistrate Reg Marron further remanded Mr Humphreys, who will reappear in court on Wednesday at 2.15pm.
Police also arrested and bailed a Summerhill woman, 21, on the same charges as Mr Humphreys.
The woman is expected to face court in November.
