Around 10.30am on Monday a van collided with police vehicles outside of Eastwood police station causing significant damage.

Police said the 28-year-old was driving a Toyota Hi-ace van when he ran up the back of a police auto in front of Eastwood police station at 10:30am on Monday. It turned out to be the same auto that rammed into the parked police cruisers and, to boot, it was carrying a lot of meth.

According to the agency, the 28-year-old driver did not fit into the garage and rammed a police auto at high speed, after which he tried to escape from the spot. Unfortunately for him, when police later caught up with him, they found 600 pounds of methamphetamine in the vehicle, worth around $1.4 million.

New South Wales police detective chief inspector Glyn Baker told reporters: "This fellow. has certainly had a very, very bad day".

The accused has been charged with large commercial drug supply, negligent driving and not giving particulars to police.

"During the search, police located moving boxes, which contained multiple bags of a crystalline substance, with presumptive testing returning a positive indicator for [methamphetamine]", the statement said.

"Police also seized the van for extensive forensic examination".

He was denied bail and was slated to appear in Burwood Local Court today. The drugs had an estimated potential street value of more than 200 million Australian dollars.
