Canadians nailed importing 16 kg liquid meth to Australia

A 27-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman flew to Melbourne from Vancouver where Australian Border Force officers found four one-kilogram packages of methamphetamine inside each of their four suitcases, for a total seizure of 16 kilos. AFP charged the pair with importation of a commercial quantity of a border-controlled drug and two counts of possessing a commercial quantity of a border-controlled drug. The maximum penalty is life in prison.

Last week, a 26-year-old dual national of Canada and France was charged with importing about $15m worth of meth from Mexico into Australia concealed in a shipment of silver concentrate.
