A 23-year-old man has been caught attempting to import an absolutely obscene amount of powdered MDMA into Australia.
Border Patrol agents stopped a shipment of pool chlorine underneath which was hidden 356 kilograms of MDMA. It has been assessed that this could amount to 1.2 million total ecstasy pills worth over $40 million. In Australia, the math works out for the cost.
The deputy chief police commander responsible for the seizure said, “In terms of drugs that were directly related to the ACT (Australian Capital Territory) this is the most significant drug seizure.”
The man, named Tamim Nozhat, was arrested yesterday and charged with “importing a commercial quantity of a border-controlled drug.”
He’s been denied bail, and rightfully so.
