Australian authorities seized nearly 200 liters (53 U.S. gallons) of liquid meth hidden in thousands of imported silicon bra inserts, federal police said Monday, NBC News reported.
The authorities who carried out the three-month anti-drug operation, which also found hundreds of liters of meth concealed in art supplies, estimated the street value of the seized "ice" at nearly $1 billion U.S. dollars.
The inserts were discovered at a container facility in December. The 86 boxes from Hong Kong were destined for a 33-year-old Hong Kong national, police said in a statement.
