    Snip from report
    AAP

    Police have seized $46 million worth of pseudoephedrine hidden in dozens of boxes of coffee in one of the largest seizures in Australia.

    Police believe the seizure of 174 kilograms of pseudoephedrine, the key ingredient in the manufacture of ice, will have a significant impact on the drug trade on Sydneys streets.

    "dozens of boxes of coffee which arrived in Sydney in a shipping container from Vietnam"

    Tonight we can all sleep better thanks to the police taking 174kg of bad coffee off the streets.
