Police say drugs seized in Brisbane's southwest could have been worth $2 million on the streets.
Queensland Police and Australian customs officers swooped on an Algester home, where they found four kilograms of pseudoephedrine – enough for more than 100,000 'hits' of methamphetamines.
They also seized $11,000 cash and false ID documents at the home.

A 29-year old Algester man with reported links to the Bandidos motorcycle gang has been charged with drug importation, drug possession and charges relating to possessing the fake ID items.
The search warrant was executed during an investigation into the importation of precursor chemicals, according to Ben Evans, the Queensland coordinator of the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service.
Taskforce Maxima Detective Inspector Brendan Smith said the haul was a “significant discovery”.
“Once again, we see another example of the link between the production of dangerous drugs and criminal gangs,” he said.
“Not a week goes by where members of Taskforce Maxima are not taking enforcement action in relation to the production of illegal drugs linked to criminal motorcycle gangs.
“These gangs need to understand the community has had enough and we will be relentless in our efforts to drive them out.”
The 29-year-old man will face the Brisbane Magistrates Court on March 28.
