Drugs worth around $9 million have been found hidden in a coffee table destined for Wellington.

No one has yet been arrested after 15 packets of methamphetamine, weighing in at more than 9kg, were found by Customs staff concealed in the table sent from Hong Kong.

"The drugs were carefully concealed to try and avoid detection, but our officers are vigilant," said Customs investigations manager Maurice O'Brien.
