Hong Kong customs seizes 135kg of cocaine

Cops found 104 bricks of cocaine in a container from South America that was declared to be carrying frozen meat. Each brick weighed 1.3kg. In Nov, Hong Kong seized 145kg of cocaine hidden in an electric transformer that arrived by air from Guatemala. That was the largest seizure of the drug at Hong Kong International Airport in two decades. A second shipment yielded 20kg of crystal meth. It was discovered hidden in an air consignment sent from Mexico.
In Hong Kong, trafficking in cocaine is punishable by life in prison and a HK$5 million fine.
