Australia: Pair charged as $60m in cocaine found at Sydney port

Two Greek nationals have been charged with numerous offences after police allegedly found $60 million worth of cocaine in the walls of a shipping container in Sydney.

Police were called to a Port Botany container logistics company with reports of a break-and-enter about 11pm on Thursday.

A man, 27, was arrested after being spotted around the containers, and officers allege a second man, 19, had fled the area.

The pair travelled from Athens, Greece, to “rip” the drugs from inside an otherwise legitimate shipping container from Italy, acting on behalf of local criminals, police will allege.

Australian Border Force were notified, and during searches discovered about 120kg of cocaine, stored in 1kg bricks in the walls of a container.
