Two people have been arrested in Western Sydney and an estimated 600 litres of liquid methamphetamine concealed inside cans of coconut milk has been seized.
In August 2020, an air freight consignment with 86 boxes of coconut milk cans arrived into Sydney from Thailand.
Australian Border Force (ABF) members examined the consignment and upon identifying anomalies, tested the liquid from one of the cans, which returned a positive result for methamphetamine.
It doesn’t pay to try and deceive Australian authorities. “No matter how criminals try to conceal their drugs, ABF officers have the technology and skills to find them and the penalties can be severe.”
