TOOWOOMBA police have seized  one of Queensland's largest haul of illegal steroids and associated drugs during a raid of a 43-year-old man's home.

Officer in Charge of the Darling Downs Tactical Crime Squad Scott Stahlhut said an initial search of a Toowoomba residence some eight weeks ago had led police to a Samford Valley address near Brisbane where a search was conducted this week.

The raid, conducted in conjunction with Petrie CIB detectives, uncovered 923 vials of steroids ranging from 10ml to 30ml, 1850 steroid tablets and 43 bottles of prescription medications in a storage shed as well as another 11 vials of steroids, unlawfully obtained prescription medication, documentation, capsicum spray and an extendable baton at a nearby residence.

Senior Sergeant Stahlhut said, based on current street prices, it was believed the haul was worth in excess of $180,000.

Police expect the raid has put a serious dent in supplies of steroids to Toowoomba which were believed to have been sourced through the Samford Valley operation.

"A 43-year-old Samford Valley man has been charged with trafficking in a dangerous drug, possession of a dangerous drug, and possession of Category M and R weapons," he said.

The accused man will appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on July 13.

A 28-year-old Toowoomba man was charged with supplying and possessing a dangerous drug after 12 viles of steroids were allegedly found during the search of a Toowoomba residence in the lead-up to the raid.

He was due to appear in Toowoomba Magistrates Court on June 22.

A 20-year-old man, allegedly found with 10 viles of steroids during a separate police search of another Toowoomba home on March 30, has been bailed to appear in Toowoomba Magistrates Court on a charge of possessing a dangerous drug.
