The Australian Federal Police (AFP) and Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) have seized more than 100 kilograms of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of approximately $65 million as part of a joint operation
Customs officers found a false floor in the container which concealed a compartment that contained the drugs.
AFP officers then conducted a controlled delivery of the consignment to an address in Prestons where the arrests were made.
AFP Acting Manager Serious and Organized Crime Arthur Moerman warned smugglers they would not get away with it.
“Those that seek to import dangerous drugs such as methamphetamine will continue to face the combined efforts of Australian law enforcement partners,” Acting Commander Moerman said.
Investigations are ongoing and the AFP has not ruled out further arrests.
