Cabramatta woman charged with importing heroin in sesame seed bars
A 41-year-old Cabramatta woman will appear in Sydney Central Court today charged with importing a substance believed to be heroin in sesame seed bars.
Customs and Border Protection officers stopped the woman for a baggage examination when she arrived at Sydney International Airport on a flight from Vietnam yesterday, 12 May 2010.
During the examination, officers located a quantity of white powder concealed in the bars.
Initial testing indicated the presence of heroin.
The woman was referred to the Australian Federal Police, and charged with importing a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug, contrary to section 307.1(1) of the Criminal Code Act 1995.
Further forensic testing will be undertaken to confirm the exact weight and purity of the substance.
