Two men connected to a Bungendore landscaping business were arrested on Sunday, July 14, on numerous drug trafficking charges after an excavator was found packed with 384 kilograms of cocaine.

According to police, the excavator was intercepted in June and after police found the machine’s frame packed with cocaine, with an estimated street value of $144 million. An investigation was launched, leading the task force to the Bungendore, New South Wales, landscaping business.

This was the “largest ever drug interception operation coordinated by ACT Policing,” the release said. The joint operation included partners from New South Wale’s Police, the Australian Federal Police’s National Anti-Gangs Squad, Australian Border Force and other partners.

    Probably a tip from a competitor.

    Had to be a tip off on this load, coppers don't X-ray big construction equipment unless they have a reason.
  • C
    Maybe it was just to help the construction workers keep up their energy and work much, much faster.
