Australian man gets 140 million US dollars in meth after he crashes into a parked police car
The 28-year-old crashed into a police vehicle parked in front of a police station in Sydney on Tuesday, causing significant damage, police said. About an hour later, the police pulled the man in and searched his van.
During the search, the police found moving boxes containing 273 kg of methamphetamine.
The police estimated that the drugs had a street value of over 200 million Australian dollars – or $ 140 million.
The man was charged with major drug trafficking and negligent driving. The police also carry out a forensic investigation of the delivery van.
Last month, the Australian authorities carried out the country's largest seizure of methamphetamine, as police found 1.6 tonnes of drugs hidden in a broadcast of stereo speakers from Thailand drug use had an estimated street value of 1.2 billion Australian dollars, representing 837 Million dollars. Along with meth, 37 kilograms of heroin were also found in vacuum-sealed packaging in the speakers.
In January, the US authorities confiscated nearly $ 1 billion worth of methamphetamine, which was destined for Australia, on American soil, the Australian police said following a joint operation. In this attack, the drugs were found hidden in electronic devices.
