Bali police said today they had intercepted a huge haul of Australia-bound cold relief tablets that contained a key ingredient for making illicit drugs.
Some 600,000 pseudoephedrine tablets being sent from South Korea to Australia were found during a stopover on the Indonesian resort island, they said.
The bust happened in January but was announced today.
Indonesian authorities said they were tipped off by their counterparts in Australia.
Bottles of the pills, weighing nearly 140 kilograms (310 pounds) in total, were labelled as health food, authorities said.
A resident of Australia, who was not identified, had been arrested by Australian police over the haul, Pambudi added.
