Eight kilograms of cocaine discovered hidden in children’s books

Other substances believed to be cannabis and steroids were also allegedly found. A 25-year-old Coolbellup man has also been charged.

AFP Detective Superintendent Timothy Underhill said the effective collaboration between agencies had enabled authorities to detect the drugs.

“The AFP continues to work with domestic partners and those abroad to protect the public from criminals who aim to harm the community through the importation of illicit drugs,” Superintendent Underhill said.

WA Police Detective Superintendent Kim Massam said the partnerships between state and commonwealth law enforcement agencies had stopped the significant amount of cocaine from reaching WA communities, while ABF Superintendent Clinton Sims said the seizure was a significant result.

“ABF officers will continue to work tirelessly with our law enforcement partners to make sure consignments like these containing illicit substances do not make it through the border and those who attempt to import them face significant penalties,” Superintendent Sims said.
