Three men have been arrested in Melbourne after Australian Border Force found $20 million worth of cocaine hidden in a jukebox imported from Greece, ABC News reports.

The 45 kilogram consignment was taken to a residential property in Sunshine North, where police swooped on Wednesday.

A 39-year-old Spotswood man, a 26-year-old Reservoir man, and a 66-year-old Greek national faced court yesterday.

The arrests formed part of a four-month investigation into the alleged importation of drugs by a Melbourne-based organised crime syndicate.
