A man and a woman are due to front court in Perth today after an organised crime investigation allegedly saw $1 million in cash and three luxury cars seized.

A 37-year-old Mount Pleasant man and a 29-year-old Waterford woman are two of three people arrested as part of a joint investigation by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and Australian Border Force (ABF) into alleged drug trafficking.

A 32-year-old South Perth man was the third person arrested.

He appeared before court on November 11 and is next expected to face court on December 18.

The charges followed raids on a number of Perth properties on November 10, when police confiscated the cash and cars – each luxury vehicle valued at more than $100,000.

AFP Western Command Acting Superintendent Renee Colley said authorities suspected the cash and cars were "not lawfully earned".

"If you have ill-gotten wealth or assets, the AFP and our partners will outsmart you, we will take your wealth and we will make you explain yourself in court," she said.
