Customs and Border Protection Stops Biggest-Ever $1.29B Shipment of Methamphetamine at US Seaport


What looked like a shipment of speakers leaving for Australia contained so much more—a record-high 1.7 tons of methamphetamine, ABC News reports. Customs and Border Protection also uncovered nearly 60 pounds of cocaine and 11.5 pounds of heroin in the Jan. 11 seizure at Los Angeles/Long Beach seaport. Total street value: $1.29 billion, say Australian officials. Two Americans and four Australians, all linked to a US-based transnational crime syndicate, have been arrested in what authorities are calling a “significant blow” to the crime group, the LA Times reports. (US authorities have also made their biggest-ever fentanyl bust.)
