CBSA officers seize 116 kilos of cocaine inside a tractor trailer

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced today that its officers at the Pacific Highway border crossing have seized 116 kilograms of cocaine that was hidden in a shipment of lemons. On January 16, 2007, officers became suspicious of a driver of a tractor trailer, and he was referred for a secondary examination. While inspecting the cargo, which was listed as a shipment of fresh lemons from California, officers discovered several boxes actually contained bricks of cocaine. In total, CBSA officers found 100 bricks of cocaine. The driver was arrested by the CBSA and turned over to the RCMP, which continues to investigate this case.
