HONG KONG: Police have made their biggest-ever seizure of ketamine, uncovering a 682-kilogramme stash with an estimated street value of HK$437 million (1.7 billion baht).
The haul, shipped into the city from Pakistan in packages labelled “macaroni”, contained more of the illicit drug than was seized in any single year since 2007, Chief Superintendent Lam Man-han of the Narcotics Bureau said on Friday.
“There were more than 1,650 boxes of macaroni and spaghetti in the warehouse. More than 1,600 bags of ketamine were found concealed inside 71 of the boxes, and each bag contained 400 grams of the drug,” senior superintendent Ng Kwok-cheung said at a press conference.
He said their investigation discovered the consignment had arrived in Hong Kong from Pakistan in early January.
