Customs seizes suspected ketamine worth about HK$6.3m
Customs on Monday seized about 11 kilograms of suspected ketamine with an estimated value of about HK$6.3 million at Hong Kong International Airport.
Officers inspected an air cargo consignment, declared as carrying tempered glass, arriving in Hong Kong from Pakistan. The batch of suspected ketamine was found concealed inside two plastic pallets used to carry the consignment.
It is believed that the drug traffickers attempted to evade Customs detection by using this uncommon concealment method.
Moreover, Customs officers found that the drug traffickers hired a logistics company to deliver the consignment and intended to send it to rural areas in Yuen Long.
Customs reminds public members to stay alert and not to participate in drug trafficking activities for monetary return. They must not accept hiring or delegation from another party to carry controlled items into and out of Hong Kong.
