This story was found on the BBC website and I don't know whether the U.S. press is going to pick up this story or not. It certainly wouldn't give any credence to Trump's claim of all the drugs streaming into the US from Mexico and that's why he says we need a wall. It has to do with drugs LEAVING the U.S. and going to Australia. 3,800 lbs of meth seized, valued at $1.2 billion. Two Americans arrested, a 52 year old man and 46 year old woman. I have a feeling this is all we'll hear about this massive drug bust coming FROM the U.S.

Australian police have arrested six people in Victoria and New South Wales after the biggest seizure of crystal methamphetamine in US history.

Authorities say the 1,728kg (3,800lb) stash - the largest ever intercepted drug shipment to Australia - was found in January at a port in California.

The haul is said to be equivalent to 17 million doses and worth an estimated A$1.29bn ($910m; £705m).

Three of those arrested appeared at Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday.

Among the suspects are two Americans: a 52-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman. Australian Federal Police (AFP) say they were found with "hundreds of thousands of dollars of proceeds of crime" during a raid in Melbourne.
