They knew the candles had meth in them because the 12-hour candles were done in 38 minutes

I would say the 12 hour candles lasted 2 weeks.

The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long.
And you have burned so very, very brightly...

I'm surprised there's money in importing meth when nearly any redneck can make it in his garage.

When we get to customs, I'm gonna need you to take these candles into the bathroom. And I'm gonna need you to put them way up inside your butthole Morty.

Is 1 KG of meth really work a million bucks? I have no concept of how much meth is a normal dosage.

If they were PartyLite candles most of the street value were in those.

"Criminal syndicates will keep trying to get drugs into our country in order to make profit, having complete disregard of the harm this substance causes New Zealanders, and Customs will continue to do everything to stop them"

Yeah, dummies. Move there and then make it at home - bonus: no shipping fees!

I looked it up and in the US it sells for $3500-$21000 a pound depending on the region.

Somewhere someone is sitting all alone in a dark room wondering where their light source and their fix is.

I bet the meth heads burned out long before the candles ever did.

Auckland NZ Reporting in..........There is a bit of cop math involved but Meth retails in the $800/gram range here, $1000/g would be a top end price, remember that is in NZ dollars too.  Importing wholesale quantities of raw materials or the finished product from overseas is very lucrative, getting hold of locally sourced raw materials is not easy in NZ.  A guy could have a pretty good weekend in Auckland with 4.8kg of meth.

There is no way they figured this out unless someone snitched.  In any case, someone is almost certainly going to get a bullet through the head as a reward for losing that much product.

I am totally amazed at the brilliance of how they smuggle stuff like that.  I'll give them that...

Hmmm, do they call rural living people in New Zealand rednecks?  Or did you fail to RTFA and decide to lay down some bigotry anyway?

Maybe it gave off an odor or other such outgassing.
I remember my Spanish teacher mentioning that when she flew out Cuba (while you could), one of the passengers had slipped $100 bills inside the wrappers of her kid's crayons.  She was cool as a cucumber (drugged? Mother's little helpers?) while her kids openly played with contraband (no outgassing expected)

There are rednecks everywhere. They go by different terms, but there are education-deficient rustics populating the hinterlands of every country. I know, because I am one.

I'm thinking it got x-rayed.  The package of meth is likely denser than the wax.  X-raying candles should appear consistent, while having something inside the candle will show up.  Not many people realize packages in the mail may get x-rayed.
