Australian Federal Police seize 313kg of ice destined for South Australia, arrest three men

MORE than 300kg of the destructive drug ice has been stopped from making its way to South Australia — the largest haul of methamphetamine destined for Adelaide streets in state history.

The investigation which led to the record bust involved the Australian Federal Police, Australian Border Force, Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, the Australian Taxation Office and local police.

Three men have been arrested.

While the 313kg haul is the biggest amount of the drug destined for South Australia according to the AFP, it isn’t Australia’s largest seizure.

In December, eight men were charged after a record 1.2 tonnes of methamphetamine was found on a boat at the port of Geraldton in Western Australia.

Its street value was estimated at over $1 billion. Two of the eight men caught were South Australian.

It is believed the previous record seizure for South Australia was the 119kg seized from bikie associates in April last year.
