The Organised Crime Squad is yet to lay charges after questioning two men in relation to suspected drug-related items found in their car on Saturday night.

A Toyota Lexcen was stopped by police at 11.50pm for a random breath test before a search of the car allegedly found items suspected to be connected with the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Albany detectives assisted the Organised Crime Squad, which arrived on Sunday morning to examine the car and allegedly seized suspicious chemicals.

Detective Senior Constable Lindsay Gaunt said the two men, one from Albany and the other from Perth, were still assisting police with their inquiries.

Det. Sen. Const. Gaunt said the items were sent to the ChemCentre in Perth for testing, which could take up to 12 weeks for results to be obtained.
