Officers were also able to obtain information on the whereabouts of a 29-year-old woman who was wanted by police.

After completing the search, police attended the woman's address in Airlie Beach.

She was allegedly found with just over one kilogram of MDMA.

Both the 29-year-old woman and the 36-year-old man were charged with offences including trafficking dangerous drugs, producing dangerous drugs and possessing things used in the commission of a crime.

Police refused bail for both the man and woman and they are scheduled to appear before Proserpine Magistrates Court today.
