Customs has put new measures in place to reduce the chances of innocent travellers being arrested after a Darwin man spent three days in jail for bringing shampoo into Australia.
Neil Parry was arrested at Darwin Airport in early June when a Customs test allegedly found drugs in his toiletries.
He was charged with possessing 1.6 kilograms of ecstasy and spent three nights in Darwin jail.
All charges were dropped a week later when a second, independent test found the substance was just shampoo and conditioner.
Customs says it has put new measures in place to minimise the chances of innocent people being detained.
Customs would not say if Mr Parry is taking legal action.
