Brantford police arrested two men from Brampton, Ont. after Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) intercepted a tractor trailer attempting to enter Canada from the U.S. and seized 112 kg of cocaine from the vehicle.

The police service said in a news release it began the investigation with the help of the CBSA early this year.
