Police raids snare two-ton ecstasy haul [AU]

Police raids snare two-tonne ecstasy haul
March 10, 2005
smh.com.au

Police have seized Australia's largest haul of drug chemicals - enough to make four million ecstasy pills worth $160 million.

Raids on properties in NSW and Victoria netted two tonnes of chemicals, together with luxury cars alleged to be the proceeds of crime, police said today.

The Australian Federal Police said the chemicals were intended to manufacture MDMA - the key ingredient of ecstasy - and could have produced four million pills with an estimated street value of $160 million.

Police said the chemicals were imported into Melbourne, concealed in 44-gallon drums in a shipment of degreaser.

AFP officers yesterday intercepted a vehicle on the Hume Highway on the NSW-Victoria border and allegedly found five drums containing one tonne of the precursor chemical.

Steven Spaliviero, 39, and Ronis Gregoriades, 31, were arrested and charged with illegal importation and trafficking a drug of dependence.

The two faced Melbourne Magistrates Court today and were remanded in custody.

Other police raids were carried out in Sydney and Melbourne last night.

The Melbourne raids uncovered a further one tonne of the chemicals in five 44-gallon drums at a premises in Brunswick.

In Sydney, police raided a property at Pyrmont in the city centre, and seized a Lamborghini, a Porsche four-wheel drive and other items they allege were the proceeds of crime.

AFP coordinator of border and international network, Richard Britten, said the seizure was a big win in the fight against illegal drug production in Australia.

"A seizure of this quantity puts a massive dint in the production of drugs in Australia," he said.

"It is no longer just drugs that law enforcement agencies are on the look out for, we will also seize the precursors that make those drugs."

Victoria Police, NSW Police, Customs and the Australian Crime Commission worked with the AFP on the investigation.

Wow, Australia's cops sure get a bad deal on beans; that's $40 each... or is this just the usual law-enforcement ignorance?

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Authorities always over exaggerate the street value of the drugs they confiscate.
I just don't get it. There is no way they can take down all, let alone a significant portion of, ecstasy manufacturers/pot growers/shroom growers/etc. With large busts like this they think "we're on to something! the war on some drugs has turned a corner!". In reality for every lab like this that gets busted, I'd be willing to bet there are at least 5 others pumping out just as much.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

Probably just sassafras oil. Maybe safrole. Couldn't be MDP2P, that would be way more tabs.

Safrole isn't considered a precursor in most US states unless accompanied by atleast 1 other ingredient. Just a scheduled compound.
