The Australian Border Force are reporting a massive cocaine bust of about 384 kilograms of cocaine. The powder was found hidden within an excavator that was being shipped to the Australian snowfields.
Police say the haul of cocaine was “destined for Australian skiers”.
The excavator had arrived into Port Botany in Sydney from its origin in South Africa. It’s alleged the second-hand machine concealed cocaine with a street value of about $144 million.
Two men have been charged.
