WINDSOR, Ont. — A Mississauga trucker and his co-driver have been charged after Canada Customs agents seized 171 kilos of cocaine hidden in a load of produce at the Windsor border, according to the Toronto Sun. The 109 bricks of coke, valued at $21 million, were found on Monday in seven duffle bags and a suitcase hidden amongst skids of lettuce and other produce, the Sun reported.

Sandeep Hans, 29, of Mississauga, and Lachhman Chahal, 37, of Brantford, have been charged with the importation of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, in what has been called the largest seizure of cocaine at a land border crossing in Canada.
