On Jan. 13, a commercial transport truck driver arrived at the border crossing and was referred to secondary examination, a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) press release said Wednesday.

CBSA officers discovered suspected heroin, 2 c-b (commonly referred to as pink cocaine) and methamphetamines in large garbage bags and spare tires.

The RCMP took custody of the suspected narcotics and charged the 23-year-old suspect from Quebec City, Que.
