Following these detections, the ABF commenced Operation Accinge - a joint operation with the NSWPF Drug Squad to target the criminal syndicate responsible for these attempted importations.

As a result of the joint investigation, the ABF's Sydney Container Examination Facility targeted a consignment believed to be linked to the syndicate, and located milking machines containing ephedrine hidden in silver foil packages.
