The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has seized almost 30 kg of suspected cocaine from a commercial truck at the Ambassador Bridge port of entry in Windsor, Ont.

On Aug. 1, a vehicle entered Canada and was referred for a secondary examination. During the inspection of the cab, border services officers discovered a duffle bag containing 28 bricks of suspected cocaine. 

The CBSA arrested the driver and passenger and seized the suspected narcotics. The RCMP took custody of the subjects and the evidence.
