Drugs worth $30 million seized in Sydney: police
More than 200 kilograms of drugs estimated to be worth $30 million have been found hidden in boxes of raisins from Afghanistan, the Australian Federal Police alleges.
A 34-year-old man was charged after the shipment - allegedly containing 97.7 kilograms of heroin and 118.4 kilograms of pseudoephedrine - was seized by federal police and Customs officers at Port Botany on November 7, the federal police said.
The man, from Peakhurst, was charged with importing a commercial quantity of drugs and will face Sydney Local Court today.
"These are the largest seizures of both heroin and pseudoephedrine in the past 12 months," federal Minister for Home Affairs and Justice, Brendan O'Connor, said.
The federal police said Customs officers were examining a shipment of 3105 boxes of "red raisins" from Iran that originated in Afghanistan when an X-ray "identified inconsistencies".
"Upon further examination, a powdered substance was discovered concealed within the linings of the cartons. Further testing identified the presence of heroin and pseudoephedrine," the federal police said.
Graham Krisohos, Customs national manager sea cargo and International Mail, said in a statement the operation with the AFP was an example of how federal agencies were able to thwart "even the most sophisticated of concealments".
The federal police added that the two agencies had worked together to size 300 kilograms of cocaine from a yacht in Bundaberg, Queensland, and 271 kilograms of cocaine from a consignment of lawnmowers in Melbourne.
"These seizures show how dedicated these agencies are to stopping these drugs from entering Australia and keeping them off our streets," Mr O'Connor said.
