Arrest over heroin find
A VIETNAMESE national allegedly at the centre of an international drug smuggling ring has been charged with importing a 16kg haul of heroin into Sydney.
The $8 million stash of heroin was one of the largest busts in recent years and the shipment led police to a “holding” address in Cabramatta, where the 45-year-old Vietnamese man was arrested.
At the address police also found 224 bottles of exclusive Johnny Walker Blue Label scotch whisky, which sell for $200 a bottle. The heroin was allegedly concealed in an airfreight shipment of children’s clothing from Thailand.
