Hong Kong customs seizes 200kg of ketamine worth HK$86 million.
Customs officers have confiscated about HK$86 million (US$10.95 million) worth of ketamine hidden in an air consignment of electric drills from the Netherlands, making it the biggest haul of the drug uncovered at Hong Kong International Airport in 14 years.
Five men were rounded up in an operation in which customs officers posed as delivery workers and dropped off the consignment at a Tai Kok Tsui factory building on Monday.
The consignment, declared as carrying 12 boxes of electric drills, was selected for inspection after it was sent to the city last month from the Netherlands via Taiwan.
Assistant Superintendent Wun Chiu-yue, from custom’s airport command at its air cargo group, on Tuesday said it was not common for such equipment to be shipped into the city from the Netherlands.
