A massive haul of methamphetamine – or ‘ice’ – with a street value of more than $200m has this week been intercepted by Ryde Police, an achievement made all the more impressive by the minimal police resources involved.

The man arrested in connection with the massive haul played a key part in his own arrest, attracting the wrong sort of attention by crashing into two police vehicles with his van, found packed with 273kg of ‘ice’ when police located him an hour later.
