Indonesian Navy displays bags of the methamphetamines

The Indonesian navy has seized a boat carrying 1.1 tonnes of the drug ice, and says it is the same type of vessel used to transport a similar-sized shipment to Western Australia last month.

Key points:
The Singaporean-flagged vessel Sunrise Glory was boarded in Indonesian waters
It is believed the boat my have links to the same ship seized at Geraldton harbour in December
The 1.1 tonnes of ice was packed into 41 sacks and hidden among food supplies
A shipment of more than 1.2 tonnes of methamphetamine was seized at Geraldton harbour shortly before Christmas.

It was hailed as Australia’s largest ever drugs seizure.

Police in Australia valued that haul at $1 billion and said at the time they were monitoring the “mother ship” used to bring the drugs into Australian waters.
