Source: AP

SYDNEY (AP) Australian police seized 237 million Australian dollars ($246 million) worth of cocaine and methamphetamine found inside a steamroller shipped from China.

Australian Federal Police said Wednesday that they arrested a Canadian man and a U.S. man in Sydney after finding 350 kilograms (770 pounds) of cocaine and meth. The men were charged with importing drugs and face a maximum of life in prison if convicted.

1. I can see the Chinese pushing meth, but coke?

I guess it was a misdirection play.

3. I doubt this is true.

That machine does not look like it is powered by steam. I'll bet it is a diesel roller.

6. To be precise it's a

vibratory compactor. You are correct that it's diesel powered though!

4. It's an odd looking machine.

I wonder if that's why it was searched.

10. Another case of someone pressing their luck.

Makes you wonder how they knew to look for it there.

Where it was hidden...under the "do not open until Xmas" label?
