One and a half billion dollars — that's the value of the nearly three tons of drugs Australian authorities seized this week during the county's second largest drug bust in history.
To be exact, police discovered 1,917 kilograms of MDMA, the chemical used to make ecstasy, along with 849 kilograms of meth — the largest meth bust in Australian history.
"You can't import nearly three tons of narcotics in this country without a large and sophisticated operation and this obviously has linkages over seas that will, I'm sure, take us into Europe and parts of Asia," said Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin.
