Man Arrested for Sending Suspicious Packages to Consulates in Australia

SYDNEY – A man has been arrested for allegedly sending suspicious packages to diplomatic missions in Australia, police said on Thursday.

The man, aged 48, was arrested on Wednesday night at his home in Shepparton, Victoria, according to a joint statement by the Australian Federal Police and Victoria Police.

He is accused of “sending dangerous articles to be carried by a postal service,” which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment, and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 10, the statement added.

According to the Police, the suspect sent 38 parcels to consulates and embassies in Melbourne, Canberra, and Sydney, with what is believed to be asbestos taken from his home.

Police have recovered 29 of the packages and will carry out forensic analysis to determine the exact composition of the material.

The statement added that police have taken steps to recover the remaining packages, and there was no ongoing threat to the public.
