A former Victoria Police officer accused of trafficking the drug ice could face more charges.

Police allege David Cameron Lister was intercepted with the drug at Queensland's Townsville airport in April.

The 37-year-old has been charged with trafficking a large commercial quantity of methylamphetamine between January 6 and April 3.

He is also accused of cultivating cannabis in Greenvale, in Melbourne's north, between December 2015 and January this year.

The Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Monday was told police are considering laying additional charges.

Lister, of Greenvale, resigned from the force in mid-January.

He is among a group of people charged over the alleged drug syndicate.

Telephone intercepts and phone records are vital to the case, the court heard.

Lister, who's on bail, is due to front court again next month.
