Two men accused of drug trafficking will be summonsed to face the ACT Magistrates Court.

Police said officers were conducting a mobile patrol in central Canberra early on Sunday morning when they were alerted to two men acting suspiciously.

Police spoke to and searched the men in Petrie Plaza, allegedly finding 96 suspected MDMA tablets, cash and drug-dealing paraphernalia.

A further search of the area uncovered another 22 tablets suspected to be MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy.

ACT Policing said both men would be summonsed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

Anyone with information about illicit drug activity in the ACT was urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
