Van packed with drugs slams into Australian police car

A clumsy driver led police to a A$200 million ($140 million) drug bust in Australia on Monday (July 22) after he crashed a van laden with 270 kg (600 lb) of methamphetamines into a patrol car parked outside a police station in suburban Sydney.

Rough cut, no reporter narration.

Van packed with drugs slams into Australian police car

The man, 28, slammed the drug-filled van into the empty police patrol car at Eastwood in the city's north, crushing its bonnet, before speeding off, CCTV footage showed.

He was caught by police an hour later.

A search of the vehicle turned up 273 kilograms of ice, said police, who released footage of the drugs neatly packed in cardboard boxes, taped up and loaded into the back of the van.

The driver was arrested and charged with drug supply and negligent driving and is due in court on Tuesday (July 23).
