Over $1 billion in meth hidden inside speakers in Australia’s largest ever haul

332

The largest ever methamphetamine haul discovered on Australian soil has been seized by federal police after almost 1.6 tonnes of the drug were found hidden inside speakers shipped to Melbourne.

Officers from the Australian Border Force discovered the drugs after they asked for sea cargo shipped from Bangkok, Thailand, to be inspected at a container examination facility.

After an X-ray, officers spotted “anomalies” inside the speakers and took them apart.

They found dozens of packages containing methamphetamine and heroin, which had been vacuum-packed and stuffed inside the stereo units.
