4 kg cocaine bust at Perth Airport

Customs officers at Perth Airport have seized four kilograms of cocaine discovered hidden inside a traveller's suitcase. Australian Border Force officers selected the 64-year old American for examination after he arrived on a flight from Bangkok, Thailand. An X-ray of the man’s suitcase revealed two packages of white powder concealed underneath its lining.

The latest Global Drug Survey in 2018 has revealed cocaine users in Australia were on average paying $309.94 for a gram of cocaine. The only country found to be more expensive was New Zealand, where users on average pay $336.14 per gram.
