World's Biggest Ecstasy Haul Ever

Australia breaks WORLD Record in Drugs - Something to be proud of..... Not!

Over four tonnes of MDMA, 150 kilos of cocaine, more than 400 Federal Police working on the case, and 45 search warrants issued that lead to 16 arrests across four states. It all adds up to what’s allegedly the single largest ecstasy bust the world has ever seen, and it all took place right on our doorstep.

It’s a figure that begs belief, but the Australian Federal Police claim the international drug syndicate was responsible for as much as 60% of the drug imports to South East Australia. What’s even more startling is that the initial bust took place over a year ago in June, 2007, with police keeping a lid on it until raids were carried out across the country this morning.

MDMA tablets were discovered packed into more than 3,000 food tins, and it’s been estimated they carry a street price in excess of $440 million.
