In Sydney’s Botany Port, the Australian Border Force discovered 700 kg of cocaine on a cargo ship.
In order to bring down the criminal organization responsible for the 700kg of cocaine, which has an estimated street value of (dollar)280 million, police are asking for the public’s assistance.
On July 22, while inspecting containers on the Maersk Inverness at Port Botany in Sydney, Australian Border Force officers discovered the drugs.
According to an announcement from the AFP and ABF on Saturday, federal police seized 28 denim bags containing a total of about 25 kilograms of brick-shaped cocaine.
The word “Netflix” and the numbers 5 and 365 were among the various symbols that forensic analysis revealed on the bricks, according to the reporting agencies.
Before sailing to Australia, the ship made stops at ports in Central America and South America, according to AFP Detective Inspector Luke Wilson. The ship has been given permission to continue its voyage.
The seizure of the drugs, according to Insp. Wilson, would deal a serious blow to what was probably a well-funded criminal organization.
According to him, “We are still looking into where the drugs were loaded and who was planning to collect them in Australia.”
According to the AFP, this seizure prevented more than (dollar)451 million in drug-related harm for the community.
Superintendent Joanne Yeats of ABF Detained Goods NSW claimed that the discovery of the cocaine demonstrated the officers’ technical proficiency.
The agency, according to her, “stopped this large shipment of cocaine from entering our community” and disrupted the supply chain for the criminal network.
Crime Stoppers can be reached at 1800 333 000, and anyone with pertinent information is urged to do so.
