Mystery Qantas cargo escorted through city
Thousands of Sydney commuters were left shaken and stirred this morning as they watched a large, heavily armed police convoy whisk two mystery cargo containers through heavy city traffic this morning.

Police have confirmed that the operation took place, but refused to comment on what the two containers - carried by Qantas trucks - held.

"If you knew what was in there you would understand," a police spokesman told smh.com.au.

SMH

Any thoughts?

Yup, that would explain it.

I had a little chuckle when I read that the alleged Importer of said goods was, among other things, charged with "attempted possession". I understand what it means, but it does sound a little... Ridiculous!

Hi there

The stuff must have been moved to MEL, as there was a police motorcade befitting a US president coming off the freeway at Flemington Bridge this afternoon, there were 6 cans on flatbed trucks, police on motorbikes and hevily armed police in armoured 4WD's. Probably used 6 trucks to lessen the possibility of a attack on the one carting the stuff:confused:

Cheers

I saw the convoy moving thru the MEL CBD (Russell St) around 3:30pm.

At least 3 motorcycles, 2 or 3 police vans, and the Qantas cargo on top of some hire trucks.
