THREE MEN CHARGED OVER METH BUST

Friday May 16 2014

– Three men are scheduled to appear at Sydney Central Local Court today charged with importing 10 kilograms of methamphetamine hidden in machinery.

The men were arrested by Australian Federal Police (AFP) members in Sydney yesterday (15 May) after officers conducted a controlled delivery to a hotel in Darlinghurst.

A 26-year-old Australian man was arrested at the hotel after taking possession of the consignment.

Shortly after, AFP officers located and arrested a 32-year-old Canadian man and a 47-year-old Spanish man in relation to the consignment. The 47-year-old Spanish man attempted to flee before being taken into custody.

The investigation began on 17 April 2014 when Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) officers conducted an examination of a consignment originating from Mexico. The consignment contained a large metal machine.

Several welds on the base of the machine were opened to reveal a concealment of foil bags. Contained within the foil bags was a white crystalline substance which tested positive to methamphetamine, with an estimated weight of 10 kilograms.

All three men were charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug, namely methamphetamine, contrary to section 307.5 of the Criminal Code Act 1995, by virtue of section 11.1.

The maximum penalty for this offence is life imprisonment, or a fine of $1,275,000, or both.

The 47-year-old Spanish man was also charged with escaping, contrary to section 47(1) of the Crimes Act 1914.

All three men will face Sydney Central Local Court today (Friday 16 May 2014).

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
