Two customs agents have been charged over Australia’s largest-ever seizure of crystal meth, which had been smuggled into the country in stereo speakers.
Married customs agents Rachel Cachia and Donovan Rodrigues, and IT worker Stephen Mizzi, have been charged over the drugs seizure.
Police say 1.6 tonnes of methamphetamine – also known as ice – was seized in Melbourne with a street value of 1.2bn Australian dollars.
Some 37kg of heroin was also found – the largest haul of that drug in Australia since 2017.
The drugs had been transported from Bangkok and the amount of crystal meth seized was “almost a quarter of the annual usage in Australia”, police said.
