NSW Police seize $5 million worth of meth from car in random vehicle stop

A MAN who was arrested after police allegedly found 10 kilograms of crystal meth in his campervan during a random vehicle stop in NSW has been released without charge.

Officers stopped the man’s white campervan as it travelled west along the Sturt Highway at Hay, in the state’s western Riverina region, around 2.10am on Sunday.

During a search of the vehicle, officers allegedly uncovered approximately 10 kilograms of white crystalised powder, believed to be methylamphetamine.


The 42-year-old driver was arrested and taken to Hay Police Station for questioning before being released without charge, pending further inquiries.

In a statement, police said if the powder is analysed as methylamphetamine, it could be worth as much as $5 million.

The powder and the vehicle have been seized by police for forensic analysis.

Investigations into the discovery continue.

Anyone with any information that could assist police with their investigation is urged to come forward.
