Police have arrested three men after finding almost 750kg of methylamphetamine with a street value of $675 million in shipping containers during a raid.

The three men are alleged to be part of a criminal syndicate responsible for importing the drug into Sydney shores. 

Australian Border Force officers seized 748kg of methylamphetamine smuggled into sea cargo containers in Port Botany last month after receiving a tip off.

Detectives from the NSW Drug and Firearms Squad arrested the men over the stash on Wednesday.

They were all refused bail to appear at court later on Thursday.

NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb will be joined by senior officers from State Crime Command and Australian Border Force to address the media about the bust later on Thursday.

Former Commissioner of NSW Police Mike Fuller said the bust will have ‘significant impact on supply and demand’.

‘Ice is a particularly destructive drug in the community. Heroin was terrible in the ’90s, but this is worse,’ he said.

‘This is a really destructive drug. So well done to NSW Police.’
