AFP NSW state manager Chris Sheehan said:

“This is a case of Mexican organised crime co-operating with West African organised crime in a global syndicate supplying large, commercial-scale quantities of methamphetamine.

“From an AFP perspective, the teamwork between these two global organised crime syndicates is unusual.”
