Around 30 grams of what is believed to be mephedrone and two bags of herbal cannabis were confiscated by officers.
A 25-year-old Alvington man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class B drug with intent to supply and money laundering in connection with the case. He has been bailed to attend Gloucester police station on May 24.
The seizures were made as part of Operation Rapier, a concerted effort by Forest police to crackdown on the kinds of crimes blighting communities.
Inspector Jane Horrobin said: "These are more good results for the Operation Rapier team and have come as a result of information from the public and some very attentive police work.
"I would urge anyone in the community with information on drugs crime to call us – everyone can see the strong action we are taking and it will continue."
