LANSDOWNE – Border agents have seized nearly 100 kilograms of suspected cocaine.
It happened Wednesday (Oct. 5) after a commercial vehicle was sent for a secondary check at the Lansdowne port of entry.
That’s when sniffer dog, Shaggy, helped officers locate four undeclared bags hidden in the trailer, which contained 98.8 kilograms (217.8 pounds) of cocaine.
A man from Laval, Que. was arrested at the scene and turned over the RCMP.
“This is one of the largest drug seizures ever at the Lansdowne port of entry. It’s a great example of the CBSA working with law enforcement partners to detect and interdict illegal drugs,” local CBSA director Lance Markell said.
