Johannesburg, South Africa: $2 million in meth found in tampered luggage at OR Tambo Airport.

Customs officials seized crystal meth worth more than R29 million ($2.11 million USD) during two separate busts at the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg on Tuesday, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) said. Customs officials became suspicious when they noticed three suitcases marked with green tape on the carousel after they arrived on a flight from Lagos, Nigeria, SARS spokesman Luther Lebelo said. The baggage tags had been tampered with, indicating they belonged to three different passengers. When the bags were opened, customs officials discovered crystal meth.  More information available here:
