He's lugging 4000 tons on one leg, should be easy to catch.

He should have hopped on a plane at the first sign of trouble.

People that deal in thousands of kilos of methamphetamine freebase don't leave potential informants wandering about.

liquid amphetamine

A lifetime ago, a friend brought some of that back from Germany, where it was sold over the counter.
All I can say is... boy howdy!

Honestly it was only about 10 kilograms of Meth at street dose prices which is what cops always use with reporters to make it a OMG amount which stands out in head lines.  In the US a 10th of a gram is a fairly standard street buy and costs around $10.  £ = $1.31. £8,000,000 equals  $10442500.98.  That $10442500.98 equals about at that price 10 kilograms.  Now considering that if you are buying by the gram instead of by the .1 you get a pretty big break in price down to about $30 a gram and larger buys are cheaper especially as the supply chain shortens the guy is honestly probably importing 10 to 15 kilos of Meth at probably about £25,000 his price.  He was going to stand to make a large profit but not anywhere close to getting £8,000,000 out of it but more like £100,000.  Which on £25K is a nice profit but the risks involved are pretty huge when you consider he was gone on the run and disappeared from his home car and family.

But how is 'liquid' amphetamine measured?

Had to wonder what someone would do who genuinely had 8000000 pounds of meth.  Assuming you're already into drug distribution (I ain't buying personal use here, sorry) you'd still have one hell of a problem.  Even organized crime has to deal with price drop during supply gluts.  It'd pretty much be a monkey's paw wish level thing unless you figured on spending decades distributing it.  Strangely, I'm suddenly reminded of diamond cartels...

Again, meth != liquid amphetamine.
