The Australian Federal Police released footage Wednesday of drugs seized during the country’s largest ever methamphetamine bust. After a raid in February outside Melbourne, police found almost a ton of crystal meth.

Meth use in Australia has tripled over the past five years, and the government set up a task force in 2015 to battle the epidemic.
