A Sydney man has allegedly been caught with A$11,000 ($12,500) worth of methamphetamine (P) in his underpants.

Police say they were patrolling the Surry Hills nightclub strip in Oxford St yesterday when they saw two men acting suspiciously about 4am.

Officers searched the men's car, and a check revealed one was wanted on an outstanding warrant and he was arrested. The 23-year-old was taken to Surry Hills Police Station, where it's alleged 41 bags of methamphetamine were found in his underpants.

More than A$4,000 cash was also seized during the search, police say.

The man, from Westmead, has been charged with dealing with property suspected of being proceeds of crime, supplying a prohibited drug and possession of a prohibited drug. He was also charged over the outstanding warrant.

He was refused bail at Parramatta Bail Court.
