Australian Trio Charged for Importing Cocaine from Portugal

Authorities in Australia arrested and charged three men for allegedly importing 1.5 kilograms of cocaine.

The three men, a 48-year-old and a 32-year-old from New South Wales and a 35-year-old from Queensland were charged after authorities seized cocaine hidden inside a Playstation 5 console.

The investigation began after officers with the Australian Border Force (ABF) intercepted a suspicious package from Portugal. The sender had shipped the package to an address in Sydney, Australia. After opening the package, officers found approximately 1.5 kilograms of white powder hidden in a PlayStation 5 console. The white powder tested positive for cocaine, according to a press release from the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

Investigators replaced the cocaine with an inert substance and delivered the package to a residence in New South Wales. The 48-year-old defendant allegedly accepted the delivery of the package.

Further investigations conducted by the AFP, ABF, Queensland Police, and NSW Police investigators from Taskforce Sentry resulted in the arrest of the three suspects on October 12, 2021.

ABF Acting Commander Amanda Coppleman said, “Border detections by our officers are generating hundreds of referrals to the Taskforce. These detection referrals have included narcotic detections comprising cocaine, MDMA, GHB, and heroin.”

The three men appeared before the Southport Magistrates Court where they were each charged with attempting to possess a marketable quantity of border-controlled drugs.

The trio could be sentenced to a maximum of 25 years in prison if convicted.

No. Continue to openly discuss your operations and nevermind *most* of your vendors seemed to create reddit accounts with protonmail or similar. Everything is fine and cryptocurrency is a legitimate investment opportunity and not a massive hilariously easy affinity fraud complete with honeypots like DNL.

Dam. New technology is way more advanced than imaginable, and affordable considering the profits the war on drugs bring in. Not even purchasing a PS5 in hopes that it will pass as a gift or an order from a legit electronic reseller can sneak in a measly amount of cocaine lol. Even the liquid methods have lost their stealth due to new technological tools that can detect drugs through layers previously thought un penetrable.

yeah I had wondered how they picked up on that ? that's some serious technology, sheer luck or they were tipped off. Do you know what machines they are using that can detect that so easily ? or did the X ray give it away ? would sure like to know more about how that was "discovered".

Watch the "To Catch a Smuggler" series. You can see the machines in action and what brand they are also.
