Member of the public tips cops off to record $500M meth haul2/28/2013
Methamphetamine dealers in Australia might have to go back to snatching old ladies' purses for a buck, with cops seizing a record 1,290 pounds of the drug. Worth almost half a billion dollars in Australia, the goodies had been shipped in from southern China, hidden amid tons of cleaning products. According to police, the crime syndicate behind the shipment had made several dry runs before sending the ice. They say if it hadn't been for a tip-off from a passer-by who spotted some nefarious goings-on at a Sydney warehouse last year, the drugs would likely not have been found at all. [Source]
