Australian police arrest Cambodian

A Cambodian man has been accused of smuggling heroin into Australia. The 57-year-old was arrested at Brisbane International Airport on May 31, Australian authorities said. In a statement, the Australian Federal Police stated that the man was taken to a hospital for a medical examination, during which, police said, he passed 300 pellets containing roughly 1 kilogram of heroin. The man was charged with importing a “marketable quantity” of illegal drugs, an offence that carries with it a 25-year prison term on conviction.
