AN el­derly cou­ple signed for a par­cel that was de­liv­ered to their home by mis­take con­tain­ing 44lb of metham­phetamine worth £5.3mil­lion.

The un­named pen­sion­ers in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia, called po­lice when they dis­cov­ered bags con­tain­ing the highly ad­dic­tive class-A pow­der.

At an­other house po­lice found more drugs. A 30-yearold man has been charged with nar­cotics of­fences.

Act­ing se­nior sergeant Matthew Ker­shaw said: ‘That’s 800,000 hits off the street.’
