A mother of three who committed the "almost perfect" crime of smuggling 250kg of drugs into the country was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment on 4th October 2016.
Yixin Gan, 35, was found guilty of two counts of importing a Class-B drug but acquitted on a third count by the jury, who deliberated for just a few hours at the High Court at Auckland.
She was also convicted of possession of a Class-B drug for supply in connection to the October 2013 importation, where detectives found 250kg of ContacNT, one of the main ingredients needed to cook methamphetamine.
She is the last of more than 30 people who were convicted across four trials following Taskforce Ghost, an 18-month covert investigation which delved into Auckland's underworld. NZ Herald article: Mum faces prison for near perfect crime
