More than $38 million worth of drugs were seized after they were allegedly concealed inside adult sex toys.
The Australian Federal Police kicked off an investigation with Border Force crews after an x-ray of a pallet of 21 boxes of adult products revealed several concealments of what appeared to be illegal drugs, the AFP said in a Facebook post.
After testing, they discovered a 58kg haul of drugs, including 40kg of methamphetamine and 18kg of cocaine.

- ‘It’s bad enough that they got caught, they don’t need to be the butt of everyone’s jokes though’
The AFP said the investigation was ongoing.
