Over $100 million in raw MDMA was recently confiscated after being found in a shipment to Australia. Described as “a very sophisticated concealment,” the drugs were found in lead casings inside aluminum rolls.

Though it was found in Australia, the package is believed to come from the Czech Republic, the two men arrested of Polish heritage. Considering the volume of drugs and the origin of the package, the Australian federal police believe this crime to have “international implications.” The investigation will continue further and more arrests may be made.

Justine Saunders, acting deputy commissioner of operations for the Australian Federal Police said,

“This has come from Czechoslovakia (sic) and has found its way to Australia, so this is bigger than the two individuals that we have arrested. So, yes the investigation will continue and, yes, we do anticipate further arrests.”
