Australia police ended a two-and-a-half year drug investigation on Christmas day by busting a cartel and seizing 1102 pounds (500 kilograms) of cocaine.

The December 25 bust, along with a seizure of 1336 pounds (606 kilograms) of cocaine from the same syndicate earlier this year, was worth about $259 million (AUD$360 million) and is Australia’s largest ever haul from a single cartel.

Police said it was among their ten largest seizures ever.
The investigation, codenamed Operation Okesi, was a joint effort between Australian Federal Police, New South Wales Police and Australia’s Border Force
