Drug bust at Abbotsford-Huntingdon border crossing

More than 20 kilograms of suspected cocaine were intercepted earlier this week by border guards at the Abbotsford-Huntingdon crossing.

The drugs were hidden in the trailer of a commercial vehicle carrying produce from California.

Canadian Border Service officers detected problems with the wall of the trailer during an inspection on December 3rd.

When they drilled holes into the wall, they hit a white powder and found 23 cellophane-wrapped bricks. The driver of the truck is now in RCMP custody, but his name has not been released.
