A Geraldton man has appeared in court in connection to the seizure last week of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of between $13,000 and $28,000.

Joshua Ross McDonald, 32, of Wandina, was not required to enter pleas when he faced Geraldton Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

He is charged with possession of a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply and possessing ammunition without a licence.

The charges stem from a police raid on a Tarcoola Beach motel, The African Reef, about 6pm on Thursday.

Police allegedly seized 13.7 grams of methamphetamine and, subject to laboratory testing, a further 14.4 grams of the drug.

Police also allegedly seized loose ammunition and more than $3000 in cash.

Mr McDonald was remanded in custody so he could obtain legal advice before his next appearance.
