Two men have faced a Sydney court charged over the seizure of 76 kilograms of amphetamine worth up to $70 million.
Acting on a tip-off, members of the Organised Crime Squad yesterday raided two homes in the Sydney suburbs of Leichhardt and Drummoyne.
There they found 64 kilograms of a white powder, believed to be amphetamine.
They found another 12 kilograms of the drug in a car at Drummoyne.
Police estimate the haul has a potential street value of $70 million dollars.
Two men, aged 50 and 55, have been charged with supplying a commercial quantity of illegal drugs and dealing with the proceeds of crime.
They faced court today and were refused bail. They are expected to appear in court again in Sydney on Monday.
