Marchman Act Blog: Australian Police Make $540 Million Drug Bust

Two police officers from Victoria, Australia, got an unexpected bonus when they stopped to help a broken down van. When they looked inside they discovered 340 litres of liquid ecstasy, enough for 1.3 million tablets. More was to come, following the arrests raids were carried out in the state of New South Wales with police netting another 1900 litres from a warehouse. In total the seized liquid could have made 18 million tablets worth $540 million. Because of how it is packaged police think that the drug may have been made outside Australia and imported, possibly from South East Asia. An Australian and a Singaporean have been charged over the haul.
