Officers stopped and spoke to a group of men in a licensed premises car park on Dorset Road just before 11.30pm.

One of the men, a 29-year-old Doveton man, is alleged to have run from police and police took chase and located the man hiding in a rear yard of a private property in Lyndhurst Close.

A search of a nearby vehicle located a large quantity of drugs and cash which were seized.

The man was arrested and he has been charged with trafficking a commercial quantity of a drug of dependence (GHB) and other drug related offences.

He has been remanded and will appear at Melbourne Magistrate’s court today.
