A man has been charged af­ter po­lice seized 13kg of cannabis with a street value of about $642,000 in Broome last month.

Po­lice be­lieve the cannabis was trans­ported from Perth, in­tended for dis­tri­bu­tion in the Kim­ber­ley town.

Act­ing De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Gary Saun­ders said in­for­ma­tion from the com­mu­nity aided the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“In­for­ma­tion from the pub­lic is al­ways wel­comed,” he said. “We need that to get these sort of re­sults.”

Mr Mor­gan has been charged with the in­tent to sell or sup­ply (cannabis), two counts of un­law­ful pos­ses­sion and one count of un­li­censed am­mu­ni­tion.
