Authorities in Australia arrested and charged a man for allegedly importing methamphetamine.
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) charged a 36-year-old man from Perth, Western Australia, for allegedly importing more than 400 grams of methamphetamine.
The investigation that led to the 36-year-old’s arrest began in early August 2021 after Australian Border Force (ABF) officers intercepted a suspicious package from Malaysia. The officers opened the package and found several packages of white powder hidden within two notebooks. The powder tested positive for methamphetamine. The packages carried a total of 406 grams of methamphetamine.

The Australian Border Force handed over the package to the Australian Federal Police. The AFP launched an investigation and on August 24, the investigators made a controlled delivery of the package after removing the drugs.
The 36-year-old allegedly accepted the delivery of the package. He then brought the package from the residence to a golf course near the residence and opened it. Police subsequently arrested him.
The 36-year-old appeared before Perth Magistrate’s Court on August 25. He was charged with one count of importing marketable quantities of border-controlled drugs and one count of attempting to possess a marketable quantity of border-controlled drugs.
The trial is scheduled for September 22.
