SYDNEY, July 23 (Xinhua) -- A van carrying over 270 kg of methylamphetamine collided with police vehicles parked in front of an Australian police station on Monday morning, with the driver facing court on Tuesday charged with commercial drug supply.

Although nobody was injured, one of the police cars was badly damaged when the van veered into two vehicles outside of Eastwood Police Station in northern Sydney at around 10:30 a.m. local time.

The van was relatively undamaged and drove away from the scene, only to be tracked down roughly an hour later by inspectors.

Police questioned the driver and a search of the vehicle uncovered 273 kg of a crystalline substance which presumptive testing showed to be methylamphetamine with a street value of roughly 140 million U.S. dollars.

The 28-year-old driver of the van was taken into custody and faced court charged with large commercial drug supply, negligent driving, and not givING particulars to police.

Police are appealing to locals for information regarding the van's movements prior to the collision.
