SYDNEY (AP) — Law enforcement officials in Australia are revealing Monday that they recently discovered about $900 million worth of liquid methylamphetamine hidden in imported boxes of silicon bra inserts and art supplies.

Four people with Hong Kong passports were arrested in Sydney last month for allegedly importing from China about 190 gallons of the drug, commonly known in Australia as ice.

Authorities say it’s the largest seizure of liquid methylamphetamine to date.
