$44 million of meth found in furniture in Australia


The drugs are valued at $44 million U.S dollars.

Australian Federal Police and Customs and Border Protection officials say they were tipped off about a shipping container that came into Sydney from Hong Kong.

After x-raying and inspecting the container, authorities found 71-kilogram packages hidden inside the furniture.

Three men from Sydney now face several charges.
