Three face life after ice bust
THREE Australians face life in jail after being charged in relation to a plan to fly $ 255 million worth of the drug ice to Australia from the US. It will be alleged a 72- year- old Melbourne man planned to pilot a plane from California to a regional Victorian airport, with 255kg of crystal methamphetamine on board. Australian Federal Police believe the international drug syndicate intended to remove passenger seats from a sixseater Cessna 210 in order to conceal the drugs. The ice was bound for the east coast of Australia, police believe, but investigations continue. The alleged pilot was stopped at Melbourne Airport earlier this month. Two other men, one aged 58 from Maribyrnong, and another aged 52 from NSW, have been nabbed in the investigation.
