Customs has seized 110 kilograms of methamphetamine and two handguns at the border in a major drug bust.

In January, Customs officers inspected a shipping container of three six-seater golf carts sent from the US.

A close examination discovered "large, ice-like methamphetamine crystals" and handguns had been hidden in the batteries.

"The presence of loaded firearms concealed with the drugs is a very real concern and shows the lengths organised crime groups are prepared to go to. It also represents a changing risk profile to both our officers and the community at large," says Customs investigations manager Bruce Berry.
