A routine aircraft cargo check proved fruitful for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) who announced a major cocaine seizure.
Agents removed over 100 brick-shaped bundles of cocaine from a flight that arrived from Mexico, in January.
The shipment was transported to CBSA offices in which two large wooden crates were extracted, containing individual cardboard boxes inside.
Upon cutting open a brick-shaped bundle a white powder was discovered.
It’s believed close to 118 kilograms of cocaine were retrieved from the seizure which would have a street value in the millions.
The suspected cocaine was turned over to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
