A 48-year-old Geelong district man is in the process of being charged with a range of drug offences after a vehicle with false number plates attracted the attention of police in Hamilton early Friday.
Hamilton police Constable Eric Valka said the vehicle parked in Brown Street was seen by uniform police members about 1.30am and a check found it was fitted with false number plates.
He said two men from Corio were intercepted and their vehicle searched.
"During that search we located a small quantity of cannabis and methamphetamine," he said.
"One man was arrested, taken to the Hamilton police station to be interviewed and on his mobile telephone evidence was found of cannabis cultivation as well as trafficking both cannabis and methamphetamine."
Constable Valka said information was passed on to Geelong police officers early this morning and a warrant was expected to be executed at an address in the city this morning.
"The man is in the process of being charged with a range of drug offences likely to include cultivation of cannabis and trafficking both cannabis and methamphetamine."
"We noticed the vehicle in Brown Street and it just all went from there."
Constable Valka requested that any member of the public with information about illicit drug-related activity contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
