An 18-year-old Auckland student has been sentenced to three years jail for importing class B drugs.

Jayden Wenski was caught trying to import almost 10kg of Contac NT which contains pseudoephedrine, a drug commonly used to make methamphetamine.

Wenski tried to smuggle the drug by sending packages to various Auckland addresses of friends declaring them as lighting.

The amount of drugs could have equated to between $4 million and $5 million in street value.

Customs manager of investigations Mark Day says one of the main strategies to stamping out 'P' is breaking supply chains.

He says they're constantly alerted to smuggling trends and have the capabilities and expertise to stop the drugs getting through.
