Law enforcement around the world and its “War on Drugs” has proven to be a real thorn in the side of the drug trafficking industry, especially those who pump cocaine. It seems every other day, the boys are making multi-million dollar seizures of coke somewhere in the world. Enough of it must get through, because the suppliers keep on supplying. Nevertheless, the latest plug-fucking occurred in Sydney, Australia, where three men were busted as they expected to receive a whole lot of blow.
According to ABC, a hydraulic press shipped from Panama and stuffed with kilos upon kilos of cocaine, was seized at Port Botany. The police say that inside the press, they found 67 bricks of powder cocaine. Additionally, there were smaller packages which brought the total weight to 71 kilos, worth a reported $25 million.
The crafty cops replaced the coke with “an inert white powder” and sent the hydraulic press to its destination, a workshop in the town of Smithfield. There, the authorities say two men took the bricks out of the press as a third man acted as lookout. The men were arrested an brought into custody.
The two men who removed the bricks, aged at 26 and 30-years-old, were charged with “attempting to possess a commercial quantity of the drug.” The 23-year-old lookout was hit with a charge of “aiding and abetting.” All three are from Sydney. They appeared before Parramatta Local Court on Thursday, where they were refused bail. Central Local Court in Sydney in March “via video link.”
