More than $300 million worth of methylamphetamine has been found stashed inside bottles of hot chilli sauce.

In August, authorities in Sydney seized a delivery of 755kg (1,664 lb) of meth worth about $391 million hidden inside raw cowhides from Mexico.

Chilli sauce was used as a cover to trade meth or ice into Australia.

Australian Border Force officials made the bust on October 15 after receiving a suspicious package at a freight depot in Sydney from the U.S.

A 45-year-old man was arrested Thursday morning just outside a home in Edensor Park after task force agents with the NSW Police Force linked him to three other suspects arrested earlier this month in connection with a cargo shipment filled with 768 bottles of sriracha that contained "ice". However, all the 768 bottles positively included ice in them.

The consignment, which was declared to contain hot chilli sauce, was examined by ABF officers who noted inconsistencies.

Methamphetamine is used as a recreational drug. It is 80 percent pure and one of the most unsafe drugs. Consequently, a total of 4 men were arrested.

Following the fight, Khabib and McGregor engaged in a bitter brawl that saw the Russian fighter suspended for nine months. McGregor's return, which he announced himself , will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas , January 18th.

It will be alleged in court that the 36-year-old Plumpton man accessed the consignment at Wetherill Park, before transporting it to a storage facility at Minchinbury.

The following day, two men, aged 30 and 34, were arrested in the parking lot of a hotel in Sydney's central business district. He is expected to be charged with possessing identity information to commit an indictable offense.

"The men were all charged with attempt to possess a commercial quantity unlawful import: border-controlled drug and large commercial drug supply", NSW Police said on Thursday.

Stuart Smith, State Crime Commander, reported that it had been a complex investigation.

The State Crime Command's Organised Crime Squad established Strike Force Diffey in September 2019. Kirsty Schofield, AFP Commander Organized Crime, said authorities are working with their USA counterparts to determine where the drugs originated.

Officers from the strike force investigate coordinated money laundering across Sydney as well as the importation and supply of illicit drugs into NSW.
