Former AFL star Sam Fisher has been caught up in a police raid which has seen him charged with trafficking a commercial quantity of illicit drugs.

The retired St Kilda player is facing a string of charges after his Bayside home was searched on Wednesday by members of the Victorian Police force.

According to reports from News Corp, Police seized a range of things, including methylamphetamine, and other materials believed to be the proceeds of crime, such as Mercedes-Benz.

As a result, the former All-Australian now faces several serious charges, with the materials all seized from his Bay Rd address in Sandringham.

The investigation is the result of WA Police seizing a parcel containing $129,000 in cash on April 20 that was bound for a Melbourne address. On the same day, another parcel was intercepted which is alleged to have originated in Melbourne and contained roughly 1kg of meth and 84g of cocaine.

Part of the allegations centers around drugs being regularly concealed in white goods and sent from Melbourne to Perth. That second parcel is believed to have been discovered within a kitchen appliance.

The bust was hailed as a "remarkable result" by Detective Inspector Craig Darlow of the Trident Taskforce. With so many traffickers reportedly believing drugs can be concealed easily to avoid detection, he was quick to point out the effectiveness of police.

"There may be a perception drugs can be easily concealed, however we have seen time and time again, the ability of police to detect and seize these substances" he said.

"This is a warning that regardless of where you are or.... how you operate, we will target those involved in the manufacture and trafficking of illicit drugs and hold them to account."

Fisher's lawyer Luke Karas appeared in court without the former defender on Wednesday evening, citing him as being unwell.

"Not too sure of the exact nature - tired, sleep-deprived a little bit," he said.

"He advised me he would prefer to stay in custody."

The case was adjourned until August 10.

Fisher played 228 games with St Kilda after joining the club ahead of the 2004 season from West Adelaide.

The 55th pick of the 2003 AFL Draft also claimed a pair of best and fairest awards whilst at Moorabbin for stellar seasons in 2008 and 2011.
