Police officers have arrested two men and seized 8 kg of methylamphetamine (“ice”) in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW), with an estimated street value of over 4 million Australian dollars (about 2.5 million U.S. dollars).
In a statement released on Wednesday, the NSW Police Force said that detectives carried out an investigation into large-scale drug supply in the Manning Great Lakes region, located in the northern part of the state.
In September, two packages from abroad were intercepted at a mailing facility in Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, and were found containing 8 kg of the drug ice.
Following further investigations, detectives executed a warrant at a house in the NSW on Tuesday, during which they arrested and searched two men, aged 29 and 22.
According to the statement, they were each charged with a large commercial supply of prohibited drugs, and both refused bail. ■
