Federal Police say the 30-year-old had flown a passenger flight from Malaysia with five kilograms of the drug ice in his suitcase.


The maximum penalty for the offences is life imprisonment and/or an A$825,000 fine and 25 years imprisonment and or a $550,000 fine respectively.

The AFP have been investigating Thiagu since August when he allegedly delivered 1.4kg of heroin to a man at a Sydney hotel on August 7. That man was arrested and charged.


Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....

Well, I bet there was a bit of a delay with what ever flight he was scheduled to operate, while they found a replacement pilot.

I could imagine the callout the MH staff would be saying.

"We would like to apologies for the late departure of this service. The is because our pilot has been arrested, charged and not been granted bail for the importation of an illegal substance

What does MH Cargo operate to SYD? B74F? MD-11F? I'm guessing this guy was an F/O.
