A second person has been charged over the alleged importation of more than $4 million worth of methylamphetamine through the mail.
The arrest of a 40-year-old Page man follows the Australian Border Force intercepting a package, allegedly bound for a home in Bonner, with four and-a-half kilograms of methylamphetamine inside.
Police believe the interception has stopped 45,000 street deals from entering the ACT.
According to police, officers from the drugs and organised crime team executed a search warrant at a home in Page two days ago, finding methylamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, suspected stolen property and more than $15,000 in cash.
The man faced court today (November 25) charged with attempted possession of a commercial quantity of an imported drug and trafficking in a controlled drug.
A Bonner woman has also been charged in relation to the incident.
