Someone's in TONNES of trouble! Australian and US authorities have seized more than 1.7 tonnes of ‘ice’ bound for Australia. Luckily we worked with our US buddies and were able to stop the shipment before it reached our shores. This is the largest ever shipment of methylamphetamine bound for Australia and the largest ever domestic seizure of meth on record in the US. If it had made it to Australian streets, it’s estimated to be worth approximately $1.29 billion dollars and equates to some 17 million hits. Six people have been arrested for their alleged involvement. Help us celebrate and post your best ice puns below. 👇👇👇
