Almost 1300 kilos of “K” was discovered in a ship/boat docked in southern Taiwan this week — the largest drug bust in Taiwan’s history (thus far). Mayor Chen Chu visited the police responsible for the raid and commended them for their work yesterday.

The Taiwan News has more:

“CNA reports that the exact amount of ketamine seized by officers was 1,289.6 kg, which is estimated to have an approximate value of NT$3 billion or US$102 million. The ship’s captain has been detained by police for questioning, and five Indonesian crew members were arrested, but then turned over to the agency that hired them to work on the fishing boat, according to the report.  The ship, called the Sheng Mi Lan, had been under surveillance since early January, after police received a tip that a drug smuggling ring was operating in the waters around Kaohsiung … ”

And in case you were unaware, ketamine has been definitively linked to bladder problems … so skipping any moral/legal judgments … it appears ketamine really isn’t something you want to fool around with.
