Australian police have seized 720 litres of methylamphetamine or liquid ice stashed in a shipment of bras, says a report by ABCNews.
Liquid ice seizure “largest bust in history”
According to authorities, the liquid ice valued at $1 billion was discovered in a shipment from Asia to Australia. Some of the drugs were found in five storage units in Sydney.
Aside from the stick-on ‘water magic’ push up bras, the liquid ice was also concealed in bottles of craft glue and painting sets.
It is, says Federal Justice Minister Michael Keenan, the largest seizure of ice in its liquid form in the history of Australia. It is also one of biggest-ever drug busts in the country.
Four people have been arrested and charged for the crime.

Drug traffickers always ‘creative’
Well, drug traffickers have always been creative when it comes to running drugs across borders. We can only consider ourselves fortunate for having a vigilant police force. Without them, 3.6 million individual hits of ice would have hit Australia’s streets and made the country’s already bad ice problem even worse. So kudos to the Australian Federal Police and Minister Keenan for a job well done. We can only wish them more and bigger drug busts in the future!
