Customs seizes suspected 'ice' at airport
(08-06 17:04)

Hong Kong Customs seized about 2 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine, also known as 'ice', worth about HK$840,000 at the Hong Kong International Airport yesterday. A woman, 25, was arrested.
Officers of the Customs Drug Investigation Bureau yesterday intercepted a female passenger who joined a tour and was about to depart for Melbourne, Australia, at the departure hall of the airport. Customs officers opened her suitcase for examination and there was a pepper odor in it. After in-depth inspection, the suspected methamphetamine was found hidden in a false compartment dusted with pepper powder. It is believed that the suspected drug trafficker tried to make use of the odor to avoid detection.
