    POLICE and customs officers have seized more than 70 kilograms of the drug ice worth up to $42 million after finding it in outdoor furniture shipped from Hong Kong.

    Three Sydney men have been charged over the haul after a joint operation by Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service.

    Police said on Friday that earlier this month customs officers acting on a tip-off inspected a shipping container that had arrived at Sydney from Hong Kong carrying an outdoor dining set.

    Further inspection, including X-rays, revealed about 70 one-kilogram packages hidden in the frames of five lounges, police say.

    The AFP subsequently carried out an operation in Fairfield and raided homes in Sydney overnight.

    "Ice is a terrible drug that destroys people's lives," Customs and Border Protection National Manager Cargo Operations Jagtej Singh said in a statement, adding the seizure would protect the community.

    AFP Manager of Serious and Organised Crime David Sharpe said the charges were a great result for the two agencies.

    A 29-year-old man has been charged with importing a commercial quantity of methamphetamine and a 19-year-old and a 32-year-old man have been charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of methamphetamine.

    They were due to appear in Sydney Central Local Court on Friday.

    The maximum penalty for each offence is life imprisonment and/or an $825,000 fine.

    Honestly, I was a bit let down after reading this article. The main reason I posted the article is because of the 'holy shit' moment I experienced when I read the title.

    it's curious they don't talk about any charges in Hong Kong, where the furniture originated.......should easily be tracked to a factory etc.

    I wonder who tipped them off, maybe they didn't pay so the Chinese turned them in.

    How much time do you get for 44m worth of meth?

    fu#$king life in prison that's a bit harsh for these young entrepreneurs.

    That was some pretty dope if I didn't like my avatar I might change it to that picture we should put that one somewhere special its a great picture brings back memories of another time. What a waste of great dope.....I hope for the Ausie's sake this was just a present for the cops so they could look effective while the real deal was in a different container.

    I am not sure if this is price discussion I am commenting on a news piece 70 1 kg bags

    being from America I need to break this down into something more recognized by me. Sorry the rest of you that are still on that system that works better is probably easier to understand but here goes.

    1kg is equivalent to 2.20462 pounds times 16 ounces in a pound thats 35.27392. lets figure 8 balls (for you out there that 1/8 ounce or 3.5 grams) so 35 ounces time 8 lets see we will get 282 8 balls and some change.............since I know an 8ball goes for @#$##

    Now since I can't do price discussion here I will just tell you that my figures are $#%^%$@# per kg and there were 70 kg so thats $#%^%$@# x 70

    Lets just say that they are so far off on there estimation of street value it is mind boggling that no one notices. It isn't 1/10 what they are claiming

    Alpha sir if this constitutes price discussion lt me know and it's history I didn't discuss any prices all I did was break down the amount into easier to understands units of measure.

    THese three couldn't have sold this meth 40 million if there life depended on it. Granted they could have maybe become a millionaire depending on what they paid.
