Victoria’s second largest liquid meth haul worth $80.7 million seized

540kg of liquid methamphetamine worth an estimated $80.7 million was seized after the border controlled drug was discovered concealed inside a shipment of thousands of canola oil bottles sent from Mexico to Melbourne.

Australian Border Force (ABF) officers identified the suspicious consignment spread across two shipping containers when it arrived in Victoria.

Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers seized the shipment, which contained a total of 9,360 canola oil bottles. Forensic testing later confirmed 269 of the bottles contained an estimated 538 kilograms of liquid methamphetamine rather than canola oil. The liquid methamphetamine seizure is the second largest in Victorian history.
