Vintage Bentley Shipped to Australia Contained Over $100 Million in Meth & Cocaine

"Socalj" for Borderland Beat

Police in Australia found large loads of cocaine and meth worth an estimated AUD$155 million hidden inside a vintage Bentley luxury sedan that was shipped from Canada earlier this month.

The mixed load of illicit in-demand street drugs was found stuffed into a regal 1960 Bentley S2 that was placed in a shipping container and sent by sea from Canada. It arrived at Port Botany in Sydney, according to New South Wales Police.

The container was x-rayed by Australian Border Force agents who spotted suspicious anomalies. Further examination of the Bentley revealed plastic-wrapped bags of crystal methamphetamine stuffed behind the headlights, authorities said.

It appears police removed the drugs, reassembled the car, and allowed it to proceed on its journey to be delivered to whoever might be expecting it.

The border agents called in New South Wales Police, who partially dismantled the car. Officers found 161 kilograms of crystal meth in bags and 30 kilos of cocaine packed as tightly wrapped pressed bricks. Australian authorities started a task force to investigate the importation with assistance from the RCMP, according to Australian authorities. The investigation was codenamed Strike Force Chime.

Detectives backed by heavily armed members of the riot squad raided a residence in a suburb of Sydney called Rooty Hill. Two men were arrested there, aged 22 and 23.

Police photographs of the raid show the distinctive lines of a metallic silver Bentley in the driveway of a home, under an open carport. The left headlight is partially removed and dangling, and the left front tire is off, with tools scattered around. It seems police waited for someone to start trying to retrieve the load before swooping in.


Two men are shown in handcuffs sitting on the ground beside the car, guarded by police. Officers seized the Bentley and a Ford Focus, along with mobile phones and a computer. Several tools, including an angle grinder, were examined at the scene.

After a subsequent traffic stop on a highway about 740 kilometers north, almost at Brisbane, a third man, 25, who was driving, and a 25-year-old female passenger, were arrested. A search of the Toyota SUV uncovered an additional 2.2 kilograms of meth and about one million dollars in cash hidden under the cargo area, police said.



All four suspects were refused bail. Police estimated the drugs had a combined value of AUD$155 million, which is about C$140 million or $108 million USD.

      I have $37 in my pocket. I will stay in the bidding process until the bid gets above $37. If I get this car for $37, you will be the first person that I will give a ride to but you will have to buy the gas because I would have already spent my $37.

      This could be a biker gang because they are the main drug distributors in Canada. Some of them do get their drugs from Mexican cartels.

  7. This was all triad based trade. As most of our Aussie drugs are. Most comes in thru chinese triads and has for years. I get the feeling the Mexicans are only just sussing us out as a market recently. Profits are huge here.

    Its good that you mention the triad gangs. They are often overlooked on this forum. On this side of the Pacific, the triad gangs don't make it into the news like the Mexican cartels do and our view of the situation is colored by this lack of coverage and very limited knowledge of gangs outside of our region. You most likely have a better grip on the drug situation in Australia than I do along with most of the readers here on this forum and your input is greatly appreciated. It is nice to have someone from Australia on this forum to give us insight when Australia enters the picture.
    Triad meth usually originates in Asia. They most likely would have imported the cocaine directly from South America. There is a pretty good possibility that these drugs originated in Mexico. Canadian biker gangs have members and affiliates in Australia. I am basing my opinion on my personal knowledge of biker gangs in Canada. This is just my personal opinion which could be wrong, which of course is colored by my very limited knowledge of the triad gangs. We have to wait and see if they identify any criminal organizations involved.
    Please update us if you hear something further.

  9. Take your pick. All crime groups are flooding Australia with drugs these days. Profits are one of the highest if not highest. Bikers, middle eastern, Triads, Mexicans, Colombians, Italians etc. etc. Even local old aged aussies are bringing it in on luxury yachts.

    1. The number of suppliers is strictly proportional to consumption habits. Basic Economy. That means there are much more demand than product available.
