Ar­rest over heroin find

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - One Day To Go Wedding Of The Decade -

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.
