Drug busts are sometimes not the apparently random events that they appear to be. large, i.e/ multi-tonne busts are often mid level deep events.

Amphetamine busts

Saudi Prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz was held in Syria with four other men and around 2 tons of amphetamines in the Prince's private jet, The Telegraph reported in 2015 that the country has a growing role as an exporter of illegal drugs.[1]

Decreasing reports

For large (multi-tonne) drug busts, different reports of drug sizes is standard. A fairly common pattern is for earlier reports to be larger.
