Around two gallons of liquid meth was found inside the fifteen snow globes after the ABF X-rayed the shipment sent to Sydney. Upon further examination, it was revealed that the hidden meth was worth more than one million dollars!
Fifteen snow globes filled with nearly two gallons of liquid meth came to Sydney from Canada in a cardboard box. According to the Australian Border officials, police intercepted the globes carrying methamphetamine worth more than one million dollars.
A video was shared by the Australian Border Force that showed an officer opening a cardboard box to reveal a number of snow globes wrapped in bubble wrap. The glass domes featured animal figurines, like llamas and sloths, and gold glitter.
The shipment received by the police was sent for an x-ray and upon further examination, it was confirmed that the liquid that filled the globes was not any ordinary substance but methamphetamine. All told, there were 7.5 liters of liquid meth.
While discussing the issue with the media, a regional commander of the ABF talked about the officers who work to obstruct the transfer of drugs into Australia. “Our officers work tirelessly to prevent these harmful drugs from making it into Australian communities, and I’m proud of the results they continue to achieve,” Commander Yannopoulos said.
He concluded his statement with a warning, “The ABF has invested heavily in our technological capability in recent years and we can see further into every package than ever before. It doesn’t matter how clever you think your concealment is — we can find it. Our officers continue to prove, time and time again, that criminals who attempt to hide these substances in new and imaginative ways are wasting their time.”
