The 450-kg shipment – as heavy as a grand piano – was detected in a sea freight container of ceramic tiles sent from Malaysia and addressed to a Melbourne business, the police said in a statement.

Authorities did not name the arrested man, a typical practice in Australia unless the police deem the identification of the suspect in the interest of a victim’s family or the public.

The Malaysian man was charged with importing and attempted possession of a commercial quantity of a border-controlled drug.
