A routine traffic stop has led to the discovery of more than 410g of cannabis.

Harvey police say they discovered the drugs during a traffic stop on Friday night.

About 10.45pm officers conducting patrols stopped a vehicle near the northbound intersection of Old Coast Road and Forrest Highway near Lake Clifton.

Police allege that upon searching the vehicle they discovered a small amount of methamphetamine and cannabis in the glove box.

A further search of the vehicle allegedly revealed 410g of cannabis hidden in the boot.

Police charged a 48-year-old Mandurah man with possession of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis with intent to sell and supply.

Under WA law more than 100g of cannabis is a traffickable amount carrying an automatic presumption of intent to sell.

The man will appear in Mandurah Magistrates Court later this month.
