5 Police alleged the drugs were imported by a criminal syndicate.

6 “We will be alleging that the activities  these men undertook both before and after the fact indicate they were well schooled in what they were doing and aware of the risks of law enforcement,’’ New South Wales police’s John Watson said.

7 “These syndicates have no regard for the safety of others and as we’ve seen it this week; use any means necessary to create illicit wealth and fund further criminal enterprises.
