Two people have been charged and a baby placed in state care after $20,000 worth of drugs were allegedly found inside a tin of baby formula when a driver was pulled over for a random breath test in far west NSW.

A woman, two men and a three-month-old girl were travelling in a ute on the Silver City Highway north of Dareton at about 5.30pm on Friday when it was stopped and searched, with police allegedly finding methyl amphetamine, heroin and pills.

The woman, 25, and a man, 27, have both been charged with supplying and possessing prohibited drugs. They were each refused bail to appear at Wentworth Local Court on Saturday.

The 29-year-old male driver has been released pending further inquiries.

The baby girl has been placed in the care of Department of Family and Community Services.
