A RAID on a Kingaroy house has uncovered amphetamines, a large volume of property suspected of being stolen and nearly $18,000 in cash.

Kingaroy Police Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said police would allege a considerable amount of amphetamine was found when officers from across the South Burnett and the drug dog unit raided the Murray Pde home on Wednesday.

"It is alleged the drugs would have been in the process of being distributed for sale in the community," he said.

"The value of the amphetamines located would have been in the thousands of dollars."

"Police are continuously and relentlessly pursuing issues of drugs and crime in the community with particular emphasis on targeting these people who are bringing drugs into the community and selling it to make profit," he said.

"Investigations are ongoing and information gathered by police through these enforcement activities will no doubt lead to further arrests in the future."
