      Cops find drugs worth $246 million in steamroller

      SYDNEY (AP) - Australian police seized 237 million Australian dollars ($246 million) worth of cocaine and methamphetamine found inside a steamroller shipped from China.

      Australian Federal Police said Wednesday that they arrested a Canadian man and a U.S. man in Sydney after finding 770 pounds of cocaine and meth. The men were charged with importing drugs and face a maximum of life in prison if convicted.

      It was the police agency's second major drug bust in a week.

      On Friday, police said officials had tracked down a boat carrying 440 pounds of cocaine to Australia after it ran aground in the small island nation of Tonga.

      A corpse was found on board. Officials are trying to determine the cause of death.
