BIG DEALS BIG BUSTS

Big deals big busts on this episode of BUSTED. Whether it be smuggled in industrial equipment, or through dodgy baggage handlers on the take, drugs and contraband get into Australia in all sorts of ways. This episode will look at the big busts that law enforcement have secured and the clever police tactics that helped catch the crooks involved.

An overseas crime syndicate has been BUSTED trying to smuggle in almost 80 kilos of heroin into Perth. The drugs were hidden in large scale industrial equipment making it the largest seizure of heroin in WA history. Find out where the tip off came from and how the ABF swooped in.

Even our airports aren’t safe from crime syndicates trying to smuggle illegal items into the country. Air, ground and baggage crew are at risk of being targeted by gangs with up to 150 Qantas staff believed to have links to organised crime. Bikies and Middle-Eastern crime gangs have formed an ‘Aussie Cartel’ from their offshore lairs to direct operations in Australia.
Police have seized nearly $50 million of illegal tobacco in Logan and Brisbane. A huge bust that has put a massive dent on local illegal tobacco sellers. What’s worse – police recovered 150,000 vapes that could have ended up in the hands of children being sold for as little as $20 each! 5 people were arrested in the raid.

And finally – Rohan and Heath discuss the latest gang shooting terrifying Sydneysiders as rival families fight their vendettas brazenly on the streets. This time they emerge from the quiet suburbs and cause chaos in the middle of the Sydney CBD.
