7:22 pm on 28 May 2012

Customs agents in American Samoa have made the biggest ever drug bust in the territory.

They have intercepted more than one million US dollars of methamphetamine and marijuana mailed to a local post office box.

More than five kilogrammes of methamphhetamine and 12 bundles of dried marijuana leaves were found secreted in the bottom of a box.

A 19 year old who went to the Post Office to collect the box was taken into custody on Friday.

He has been formally charged and will appear in court on Tuesday.
