Police have recovered six kilograms of cannabis with an estimated street value of $50,000 after a high-speed car chase in rural NSW.

The driver sped off after police stopped his Nissan 200SX for a traffic violation 40km east of Walgett on the Gwydir highway, in the state’s northwest, about 6pm yesterday.

Police pursued the driver but ended the chase soon after when the vehicle accelerated to high speeds.

The car was found later after it left the highway and rolled several times.

The driver had already fled, but police found about 6.1kg of vacuum-packed cannabis in the vehicle worth an estimated street value of $50,000.

Police and SES volunteers resumed a search of the area for the man today.
