Cops in the Northern Territory have sprung some cheeky (read: incredibly crime-doing) bastard for attempting hide a cool $680,000 worth of meth in the roof of their car.

NT Cops Find A Cool $680k Worth Of Meth Hidden In Roof Of Bloke’s Ute

The boys in blue pulled a 61-year-old man over for a random check near the teeny tiny town of Adelaide River (about 100 clicks south of Darwin) when they found the haul.

They arrested him after the cops’ courageous young sniffer dog, Cougar, sniffed out something suspicious in the roof lining of the bloke’s ute.

After a root around in the roof, the cops found 500g of methamphetamine which, despite being worth over half a million dollars, is still not even enough to buy a house in Sydney (topical!).

According to Detective Superintendent Matthew Hollamby the man is now in custody “assisting police” which is probably code for being a rat.
