A man accused of drug dealing and possessing more than $80,000 in cash chose not to apply for bail after he was arrested and has been remanded in custody.

Officers raided a home in the Gungahlin suburb of Amaroo on Tuesday morning (28 March), ACT Policing said.

It is alleged they discovered about $84,000 in cash, around 845 grams of methamphetamine and cocaine, as well as 600 grams of cannabis.

Police allege the items were found in spaces above a kitchen extraction fan, behind an oven and in a kitchen cupboard.

Nathan James Davidson, who police say lived at the home, was arrested and brought into the ACT Magistrates Court on Wednesday (29 March).
