POLICE have seized 40kg of what is alleged to be methylamphetamine, after being contacted by an elderly couple who had the drug delivered to their home.

The package was delivered to their Hoppers Crossing house on Wednesday afternoon, but the couple called police when they found it contained bags of white powder.

Melbourne police spokesman told ABC that the couple had been "unsure of the significance of the find" and that officers were "assuring them that they've done absolutely nothing wrong".

The package contained what police said were 20 kilograms (44 pounds) of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of 10 million Australian dollars ($7 million).
