[AU] Two Sydney men arrested and extradited to Brisbane over $300 million MDMA drug bust

Two Sydney men arrested and extradited to Brisbane over $300 million MDMA drug bust
abc.net - April 29, 2021

Two Sydney men accused of being part of a criminal syndicate linked to an alleged plot to import more than 850 kilograms of MDMA into the state in 2019 have appeared in court.

Tony Spitaleri, 46, and Anthony Squadrito, 19, were arrested in Sydney on Wednesday and extradited to Queensland, both charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of border controlled drugs and dealing with the proceeds of crime.

Both men appeared briefly in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday morning, where their lawyer made no application for bail.

They are accused of being members of an Australian-based criminal syndicate linked to an alleged plot to import the MDMA into Queensland.

Police said the amount of MDMA had an estimated street value of $302 million and had the potential to be processed into more than 15 million MDMA tablets in Australia.

The matters will return to court next month.

The arrests were connected to a major joint international investigation, which originated in the Netherlands in 2019.

The MDMA was allegedly found in cans of tomatoes in a shipping container.

Chemicals had also been allegedly uncovered in barns and residences, hidden behind double walls, double ceilings and double floors.

In 2019, a 48-year-old woman from Bass Hill in New South Wales was extradited to Brisbane and charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of border controlled drugs.

The AFP are holding a press conference this morning in relation to the arrests.

Let's just pretend they are being honest or accurate about the number of doses it could be turned into.

They are saying $20 are pill...as if every single persons pays $20 for every single one they eat,

But these guys aren't getting $20 a pill, more like $5.

So 75% of that 300(although it's not really 300), or $225 Million, isn't really going anywhere. It's just changing hands. It's like the cost of transport and distribution.

Drugs don't get more valuable each time they are sold, they get more valuable each time they are brought closer to the end user, The value added comes from the person moving them, therefore it makes no sense award bulk drugs retail values.

Still that's almost 1,900 pounds.  At say $600/oz thats 32 million.  Inflated value yes but not pocket change.

The point isn't that they are inflating the value...it'd be one thing to say the bulk value of MDMA is $1,000 an oz when in reality the bulk value of MDMA is $600 an oz. That's an inflation of value.

But when you award the retail price to a bulk amount it isn't in inflation of price, because it's not as simple as assuming that you are getting more for the MDMA than what you are actually getting, what they are positing is that it is absolutely FREE to distribute that MDMA. To get that MDMA into the hands of users at $20 a dose costs money, that cost has to be subtracted from the value of the MDMA.

When people pay $20(lol) for a dose of MDMA they aren't paying $20 for 150mg of MDMA, they are paying $20 for the service, you get the point? And everything in excess of that bulk value isn't going to some drug kingpin, it isn't even going to the 2 guys arrested, it isn't leaving the economy, it isn't even leaving the community in many cases.

Not to mention the word "inflation" hardly does a 1,000% increase justice.
