Australia police seize $900M worth of meth hidden in bra inserts, glue

The largest drug seizure in Australia's history was almost literally a bust, as the country's law enforcement agencies discovered $900 million of worth of methylamphetamine hidden in imported boxes of silicon bra inserts and glue bottles, it was announced Monday.

Four Hong Kong passport holders were arrested in Sydney last month over the import from China of 190 gallons of the drug, commonly known in Australia as ice, police said in a statement.

The initial discovery was made in December, when Australian Border Forces intercepted a shipping container from Hong Kong. They found 50 gallons of liquid methamphetamine concealed inside the gel bra inserts.

Subsequent investigations focusing on the suburbs of Sydney uncovered more of the drug. 

The liquid could have made about 1,100 pounds of high-grade crystal meth, Australian Federal Police Commander Chris Sheehan said.

Officials also seized 4.4 pounds of the crystalized form of the drug.
