Two Sydney men faced court today for allegedly importing 63 kilograms of methamphetamine hidden inside shipping pallets from Malaysia, with an estimated street value of $18.9 million.
A 36-year-old Bexley man and a 27-year-old Merrylands man were arrested yesterday (8 April 2021) after Australian Federal Police officers conducted a controlled delivery of the consignment to an address in Guildford West.
The investigation began in March 2021 when a consignment labelled as mop buckets was examined by Australian Border Force (ABF) officers in Sydney.
