Snow globes filled with $1M worth of meth found in Australia

Snow globes? More like ice globes.

Australian border security agents seized a $1 million shipment of liquid methamphetamine hidden inside 15 snow globes, the Australian Border Force said in a statement Tuesday.

The meth globes held picturesque winter scenes and more than 7 liters of the dangerous drug.

The sinister souvenirs were spotted by agents in Sydney after the package arrived from Canada.

Border agents suspected something was amiss with the shipment and subjected the liquid inside — which was of a dark amber hue — to a drug test that returned a positive result for methamphetamine.

The officers in Sydney said they had only recently invested in the technology used in the discovery.

“Our officers continue to prove, time and time again, that criminals who attempt to hide these substances in new and imaginative ways are wasting their time,” ABF regional commander Danielle Yannopoulos said.

“It doesn’t matter how clever you think your concealment is — we can find it,” she said.

There have been no arrests announced.
