Authorities touted the arrests as showing how they are alert to small-time drug schemes as well as large organized crime conspiracies.

“The ABF does not solely target crime syndicates importing large consignments of illicit drugs and is equally vigilant at our airports,” Acting Commander Palmer said.

“This may appear to be a relatively small quantity of illicit drugs, but every detection we make takes drugs off the streets and we now have two alleged drug smugglers before the courts. This is why we take our border screening processes so seriously.”

There has been a string of high-profile arrests of Canadians caught at Australia’s borders with drugs.

Last month, the last of three Canadians pleaded guilty to importing drugs into Australia, including two glamorous Quebec women, caught with suitcases full of cocaine on a luxury cruise ship after documenting their journey with racy photos.
