HONG KONG (AP) – Hong Kong police said Thursday they seized 195 million Hong Kong dollars ($ 25 million) worth of illegal drugs as part of a month-long investigation, the largest seizure of the year.
Police said the drugs, including 148 kilograms (326 pounds) of crystalline methamphetamine and 86 kilograms (189 pounds) of heroin, were discovered Wednesday in an industrial building. A suspect was arrested and was due to appear in court on Friday.
Police said at a press conference that the drugs were linked to a union that had been under investigation for months. In May and July, the investigation led to the arrest of eight men and four women between the ages of 16 and 45 on suspicion of drug manufacturing and trafficking and obstruction of the policeman.
