$10m worth of drugs wrongly delivered to elderly couple

POLICE have seized 40kg of what is alleged to be methylamphetamine, after being contacted by an elderly couple who had the drug delivered to their home.

Victoria Police have confirmed, the Hoppers Crossing residents signed for a parcel that had incorrectly been delivered to them about 1pm on Wednesday.

“They discovered bags containing white powder in the parcel and immediately contacted police,” Police explained in a statement.


“That parcel is alleged to contain approximately 20kg of methylamphetamine with an estimated street value of $10 million dollars.”

Following investigations, a warrant was executed in Maroondah Terrace in Bundoora hours later and a further 20kg of methylamphetamine (also known as Ice) was allegedly located.

This also held an estimated street value of $10 million dollars.

A 21-year-old Bundoora man has been arrested and he is currently being interviewed in relation to importing and trafficking drugs.

The investigation remains ongoing.
