Another person has been charged with the alleged import of more than $ 4 million of methylamphetamine by mail.
The arrest of a 40-year-old Page man follows after the Australian border force intercepts a package, allegedly on its way to a home in Bonner, with four and a half kilograms of methylamphetamine inside.
Police believe the wiretapping has prevented 45,000 street vendors from entering the ACT.
According to police, officers from the drug and organized crime team carried out a search warrant at a home in Page two days ago, where they found methylamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, suspected stolen property and more than $ 15,000 in cash.
The man stood trial in court today (November 25) on charges of attempting to possess a commercial quantity of an imported substance and trading in a controlled substance.
A Bonner woman has also been charged in connection with the incident.
