HK police seize HK$600m worth of cocaine, 2nd-biggest bust in its history | The Standard

  • In the police’s second-largest cocaine bust ever, 618 kilograms of cocaine worth about HK$600 million were found hidden in barrels of frozen juice

  • Officers arrested a 28-year-old man after finding bricks of cocaine in two shipping containers that arrived from Sao Paulo, Brazil last Friday

  • There were 256 barrels of frozen juice in the containers. Officers discovered that 508 bricks of cocaine were hidden inside seven barrels

  • The force found the shipment suspicious as it did not require cold storage when arriving in Hong Kong, also the cost for transporting the juice in frozen shipment is a mismatch for the merchandise’s value, plus usually juice is transported with plastic barrels instead of metal barrels
