A man in Sydney was pulled over by the police for being on his mobile phone, which is of course a crime.

It was intended to be just a routine traffic stop but then the officers discovered nearly $45 million of meth, The Mail reported. The arrest took place on Friday.

Superintendent Danny Doherty, the operations manager for the Central Metropolitan Region, said the man’s demeanour prompted officers to take a closer look at the vehicle.

“His behaviour, mannerisms and certain other information they had formed an opinion they had to search the vehicle – three kilos of meth were allegedly found in the car,’ Superintendent Doherty told reporters on Sunday.

The discovery led police to stop a 30-year-old Marrickville man carrying a suitcase along a street in the west of the city the following day.

Inside the suitcase was another 10 kilograms of meth, police say.

Within hours the police had apparently swooped a home on the same street and found a cool $1.4 million stash of cash.

Another search warrant was executed at a home on Ann Street in Marrickville, where police say they found almost 76.7 kilograms of meth.

“That equates to 900,000 street deals that have been prevented from hitting the streets, with an estimated street value of $45 million. So that’s a significant impact on this network,” Doherty told reporters.

“I was there last night, and to see nearly 77 kilos of meth in a room – that’s the largest amount of meth I’ve seen in 31 years in policing,” he added.
