On Tuesday April 17, 2018, during a routine examination of luggage on a flight from Mexico, CBSA border services officers (BSO) observed anomalies on three suitcases. The suitcases were sent for a secondary inspection.

Once opened, BSOs found, in each suitcase, black nylon gym bags containing clear and taped bags of methamphetamine and heroin. This inspection resulted in a seizure of 100 kg of methamphetamine and 4 kg of heroin.

The narcotics were turned over to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

β€œThis significant seizure demonstrates our commitment to Canadians to intercept illegal narcotics and prevent them from getting into our communities. CBSA officers are well-trained to be on the lookout for contraband.” – Goran Vragovic, CBSA Regional Director General, Greater Toronto Area Region
