Almost $4 million worth of methylamphetamine has allegedly been discovered on a man who flew from Perth to Sydney and back again in one day.

Two men, aged 23 and 27, were intercepted at Perth Domestic Aiport on Monday, and 4kg of methylamphetamine was found in the older man's luggage.

He had flown from Perth to Sydney earlier that day, and was allegedly returning to WA with the methylamphetamine.

Police then searched properties in Perth and East Cannington and discovered 500g of cocaine, $10,000 cash, $11,000 worth of casino chips, a pistol, ammunition, mobile phones and drug paraphernalia.

Further investigations uncovered the involvement of a third man, a 25-year-old from Sydney, who travelled to Perth on Wednesday.

He was arrested and found to be carrying two guns and 200g of a substance believed to be cocaine.

The 23-year-old has been charged with two counts of possessing a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply, while the 27-year-old has been charged with one count of the same charge and unlawfully possessing cash.

Both men have already appeared in the Perth Magistrates Court and were remanded in custody until their next court appearance on October 18.

The 25-year-old has been charged with one count of possessing a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply and will appear at Perth Magistrates Court later on Thursday.

The investigation is ongoing and further charges may be laid, police say.
