CANBERRA – Six people including four British men have been arrested in Australia and New Zealand in one of the region’s largest-ever drug seizures.
Australian police said the bust was connected to a UK-based organised crime syndicate which supplied highly pure methamphetamine and MDMA powder.
Drugs with an estimated value of A$90m (£50m; $61m) were seized in the state of Queensland.
The drugs could have made up to 12 million ecstasy capsules, police added.
Queensland Police said it was the third-largest MDMA bust in Australia’s history and the drugs were the “highest purity” ever seized in the state. (BBC)
