Disturbing find in mustard bottles leads to several people fronting court

Three men have faced court following a record drugs bust that “severed the head” of an international crime syndicate, according to Victoria Police.

Duc Nguyen, 28, Tung Nguyen, 29, and Nhat Le, 34, faced magistrate Tara Hartnett in Melbourne on Tuesday after more than 560kg of liquid methamphetamine was seized last Friday.

They were all charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of methamphetamine, while Tung Nguyen was also charged with importing the border-controlled drug.

The alleged members of a transnational crime syndicate operating in Melbourne did not apply for bail and it was formally refused.

Helen Nguyen, 34, was charged with possessing a commercial quantity of heroin and ice before being refused bail on Tuesday.
