CBSA officers seize 2.75 kilos of heroin at Montreal Airport in QuebecPosted on November 30, 2006
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced today that its officers at the Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport have seized 2.75 kilos of heroin worth an estimated street value of $1.1 million.
In the late afternoon of November 30, 2006, an Ontario resident reported to CBSA officers at the Montréal-Trudeau Airport after arriving on a flight from Ivory Coast that had made a transit through Paris. The behaviour and attitude of the 50 year old man led officers to do a more thorough search. In checking the man's luggage, the officers noted that one suitcase had unusual bulges. The officers pierced the sides of the suitcase and found the heroin in the form of beige powder. The drugs were handed over to the RCMP, which is leading the investigation in cooperation with the CBSA's Intelligence Division. The individual was charged by the RCMP with importation of a controlled substance.
