Nine year sentence for P filled pork cans

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 8/08/2016

A Hong Kong woman has been given a near decade-long jail sentence after putting the P back in Pork.

That is, for trying to get $1 million worth of methamphetamine, or P, mailed to her in pork cans.

Sui Man "Christine" Ip was on Monday sentenced to nine years' and three months' jail for importing the Class A drug, although she'll likely be deported before serving her full term.

Customs said she arrived in New Zealand in January and two weeks later had a box of assorted food items shipped to her, including three cans marked as "stewed pork ribs".

But an x-ray of the items revealed the contents of the cans weren't food, but rather a kilogram of meth.

Ip was arrested at Auckland International Airport while trying to leave the country in March.
