Tens of thousands of dollars worth of ice has been seized after a package was mailed from interstate to a Hadspen home.
Tasmania Police drug dog Fang sniffed out the suspicious package during a routine mail screening earlier this month, leading police to an address on Monday night.
During the raid, detectives seized about 28 grams of ice, with a potential street value of about $30,000.
Guns and ammunition were also found at the property and seized, and two men were taken into custody.
Troy Anthony Gall, of Hadspen, appeared in the Launceston Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning, charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, and firearms offences.

A 44-year-old Invermay woman was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, unlawfully importing a controlled substance, use a controlled drug, and possess a controlled drug.
Detective Inspector Craig Fox said police were targeting mail importation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Due to the fact there is less people coming into Tasmania, we believe there is less avenue for drug couriers to bring product in, so drug investigation services across the state have been using this opportunity to focus more on mail centres," he said.
