An Australian man whose son died after taking a synthetic drug has gone undercover and travelled to China to infiltrate the crime gangs which have been exporting the narcotics.
Rod Bridge presented himself as a potential buyer and met with drug bosses in the city of Hefei to discuss importing supplies into Australia and was offered more than five types of synthetic drugs, including up to 200 kilograms of one drug. The bosses said they could guarantee delivery within seven days.
“We have lots of experience sending packages to Australia,” one seller claimed.
“We know how customs works. Don’t worry, Australia is safe.”
