    SYDNEY (AP) - Police have charged a driver after methamphetamine valued at more than $140 million was found in a van that crashed into police cars parked outside a Sydney police station.

    A police statement said Tuesday a Toyota HiAce van hit the cars outside the Eastwood Police Station on Monday morning, causing significant damage to one car but injuring no one.

    Police stopped a van in a nearby suburb about an hour later, arrested a 28-year-old man and seized 273 kilograms (602 pounds) of crystal meth with an estimated street value of more than 200 million Australian dollars ($140 million).

    Police says he was charged with supplying a commercial quantity of drugs, negligent driving and not giving his details to police.

    The man was refused bail.
