Illicit drugs with a street value of about $60,000 were found by police and Customs officers in Dunedin today.

The drugs - LSD and ecstasy imported from Germany and Britain - were found during searches of two premises, police said.

The LSD had a street value of between $3500 and $7000, and the ecstasy about $55,000.

A 21-year-old man would appear in Dunedin District Court tomorrow to face three charges of importing the class A and B controlled drugs, as well as associated drug-dealing charges.

Detective Hamish Barrons said the drugs appeared to have been destined for the local market.
