    Man In Court On Heroin Smuggling Charge

    A MAN will face a Melbourne court today charged with trying to smuggle up to 3kg of heroin disguised as coffee through Melbourne Airport at the weekend.

    The 46-year-old Australian man arrived in Melbourne on Saturday from the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, via Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, an Australian Federal Police (AFP) spokesman said today.

    The man was stopped by customs officers, who allegedly found six 500g packets of coffee in his baggage, the spokesman said.

    The customs officers were suspicious of the contents of the packets and found the presence of heroin in initial testing, he said.

    AFP agents charged the man with one count of importing a commercial quantity of a border-controlled drug.

    The man was remanded in custody by a bail justice on Saturday and will appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court today.

    If convicted, the man faces life imprisonment and/or a fine up to $825,000.

    twasnt me! ;)

    I hear on the grapevine that the arresting customs officer is a coffeesnob and the initial trigger was:

    "why the hell would anyone want to bring 3kg of Viet Robusta into Australia when we have access to awesome CoffeeSnobs beans"

    Only $825,000?
    Is that enough of a fine for adulterating coffee?

    Plus the bags had printing on them which read
    "Really good coffee inside - not heroin. Honest."

    Mind you, it would certainly pack a punch hey?

    :( What a dreadful thing to put those beans through - imagine the trauma they must have suffered.

    He deserves everyting he gets for trying to smuggle coffee with his heroin.
