Customs authorities have arrested a 31-year-old woman and confiscated 2.1 kilograms of cocaine stashed in two paper boxes of cereals and dairy products. The drugs are estimated to be worth HK$2.02 million, Apple Daily reports. The woman, described by police as South Asian, was arrested and taken into custody. The woman was caught at about 8 pm at the intersection of Cheong Lok Street and Nathan Road in Yau Ma Tei. Officers later took the suspect to her apartment in Lock Road in Tsim Sha Tsui after initial investigations but found no drugs on the premises. The suspect said she is jobless but customs officers found out that she was formerly employed as a domestic helper and has overstayed her visa.

Authorities said that with her arrest they have busted one of the main branches of a drug cartel. According to hk01.com, the drugs were in large packs, meaning they had not yet been delivered to dealers and repacked in smaller quantities for sale.

The market price of cocaine has gone up to almost HK$1,000 per gram, according to sources.

I'm just glad that none of that was accidentally sold to the public.  As it would have caused allot of unnecessary deaths.

Wow, that's a lot of cocaine. I'm so glad they caught the bad person before they get out to public.

nowadays it is hard to smuggle drugs since the technology is pretty advance and they can still catch people who smuggle.
