澳洲当局截获了一批创历史纪录的毒品,其中包括好几百公斤的冰毒。

据《每日邮报》报道,9月23日,一艘海运集装箱船从泰国抵达Port Botany之后,澳洲边境局(ABF)查获约350公斤冰毒。

据了解,这批毒品被藏在50桶液体石膏里,街头市值约为360万元。每一个桶里装有七袋白色晶体物质,用密封袋装着。

发现这批毒品的八天前,当局还发现了3.9吨液体麻黄碱,被藏在绿茶瓶子里。这些麻黄碱装在1,000多箱的冰绿茶瓶子里,成为澳洲有史以来查获毒品数量最多的一批,超过了2017年6月查获的1.4吨毒品纪录。

9月底,三人因试图走私毒品进入悉尼被捕,其中包括一名全身都是刺青图案的男子。

当局缉获上述冰毒之后过了六天,一名31岁的Glenmore Park男性居民在新州Bringelly被逮捕,面临持有达到商业数量的边境控制药品的指控。

一名持有澳洲和中国双重国籍的22岁女子和一名22岁男子在周三被捕,涉嫌参与走私麻黄碱。他们都于周四出庭受审,保释被拒。

Authorities also found 3.9 tonnes of liquid ephedrine eight days earlier in a bust (pictured)

他们所面临的指控可能招致最高25年监禁的刑罚;31岁男子可能面临终身监禁的下场。

澳洲联邦警察局局长科尔文(Andrew Colvin)赞扬了泰国对澳洲逮捕行动的配合。“我们知道,我们国家对毒品的需求永无止境,犯罪团伙会利用一切可能的手段来把这些有害物质进入我们的国境。在两批大规模违禁物质流入小区之前截获它们是所有参与行动的人都值得骄傲的成果。”
