In their largest haul ever, police in Hong Kong have seized 820 pounds (372 kilograms) of cocaine from a suburban house that was reportedly part of a botched drug shipment sent to the southern Chinese territory by mistake.
Officers discovered the stash — which has a street value of 337 million Hong Kong dollars ($43.4 million) — while investigating a missing person report in the suburban Fanling district on Sunday, Hong Kong police said in a statement.
The cocaine was stored in 26 boxes on the roof of the three-story village house, the South China Morning Post reported Tuesday.
The huge stash was the subject of negotiations between the missing person — suspected Dutch-Chinese dealer Chang Ma-ki — and Hong Kong dealers after it was mistakenly shipped to the territory, the Post reported, citing Ted Tsang, the acting chief superintendent of the Hong Kong police’s narcotics bureau.
A Hong Kong police spokeswoman said Tuesday it wasn’t immediately clear where the drugs originated and where they were intended for. The spokeswoman, would only give her surname, Tam.
