(WIFR) -- Australian police found $200 million in meth hidden inside hundreds of bottles of hot sauce.

The bottles were sent in boxes from the United States to Sydney, according to the NSW Police Force in Australia.

Four people were arrested for allegedly trying to sneak methamphetamine overseas.

The Australian Border Force tested the bottles earlier this month and found the bottles contained 400 kilograms, or 880 pounds of meth. It carries an estimated street value of 300 million Australian dollars, or 208 million U.S. dollars.

The shipment was checked by ABF officers after they noted inconsistencies, per the NSW Police Force.
