A FEMALE motorist driving with two children aged under 10 years old has allegedly been caught with methamphetamine in her system.

NSW Police officers were patrolling streets in Forbes this week when the incident occurred.

"About 11.30am on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 police attached to the Traffic Task Force were patrolling the township of Forbes when they stopped a blue Mitsubishi Triton for random testing," officers said in a statement.

"Police conducted a random drug test on a 40-year-old female from Forbes, which returned a positive indication for methamphetamine in her oral fluid."

Officers will allege that two young children were in the woman's vehicle at the time she was pulled over by police.

"The driver was arrested and taken to Forbes Police station where a secondary test was conducted," officers said.

The woman's drivers licence was suspended for 24 hours and police are waiting for the secondary test to be forensically analysed where further action could be taken against the driver.
