Van Carrying $200 Million Worth Of Ice Caught After Smashing Into Parked Police Car
| Last updated
If you were driving a vanload of drugs through a city (not that we're advocating that in the slightest), you'd surely be pretty wary of your surroundings, maintain a low profile and act like a normal road user to get from point A to point B.
Well, try telling that to this idiot of a driver who not only got caught by police, but did so because they bloody smashed their van into a parked police car.
Out of every goddamn vehicle you could have hit, you hit a marked and parked cop car.
It didn't take long for New South Wales police to track down the driver of the van, who's now been charged.
NSW Police have released a statement saying: "Following inquiries, an inspector from Ryde Police Area Command stopped the HiAce on Church Street, Ryde, about 11.30am.
"The inspector spoke to the male driver before conducting a search of the van.
"During the search, police located moving boxes, which contained multiple bags of a crystalline substance, with presumptive testing returning a positive indicator for methylamphetamine.
"In total, police seized 273kg of ice, which has an estimated potential street value of more than $200 million.
"Police also seized the van for extensive forensic examination. The driver, a 28-year-old man, was arrested and taken to Ryde Police Station.
"He was charged with large commercial drug supply, negligent driving, and not give particulars to police."
I mean, it doesn't get much dumber than this.
While it seems like police have everything they need in order to prosecute the bloke who's been charged, they're still looking for anyone with CCTV footage of the van travelling through Sydney before the car incident.
