PICS: Authorities make largest ever ICE seizure in Australian History

Authorities have made the largest ever ice seizure in Australian history.

The 903kg haul, which has an estimated street value of almost $900 million, was found hidden inside floorboards at a warehouse in Nunawading, Melbourne.

It comes following a joint operation between the Australian Federal Police and Victoria Police.

Two men, aged 53 and 36, have since been charged over the haul and face life in prison if found guilty.

The investigation remains ongoing and Victoria Police are now on the hunt for two more men who they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

Images of the two men, who are believed to be aged in their 30s and are Asian in appearance, have been released, along with an image of a white Nissan coupe which was seen parked outside the warehouse in Nunawading.

Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Crime Command Stephen Fontana said this was a significant seizure, and a great result of the continuing work by Victoria Police members with their partner agencies.

“As long as there is demand, there will be a market and we need to stop the cycle which affects the entire community,” Assistant Commissioner Fontana said.
