Thousands of pills seized in illegal drug operation

The haul, valued at more than $147,000, was intercepted as a result of a week-long international effort across more than 80 countries that included Australia’s Customs and Border Protection and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

Most of the substances were slimming and diet supplements and erectile dysfunction medication, Customs said in a statement on Friday.

Antibiotics, steroids and illegal substances marketed as legal highs were also seized
