An American and a Canadian whose identities were not released are in custody after police in Sydney said they broke up an international smuggling ring following a "complex and protracted" investigation that spanned 2 1/2 years.
The haul included 520 pounds of methamphetamine worth $180.2 million and nearly 250 pounds of cocaine worth $65 million hidden inside a steamroller that had been stowed in a storage locker, CNN said Wednesday.
The seizure comes a week after police found $120 million in cocaine aboard a yacht arriving from Tonga that had run aground on one of Australia's northern outlying islands. The two busts were not believed to be related.
