Brampton man charged after 52 kg of suspected cocaine seized from truck – Truck News

A 27-year-old man from Brampton, Ont., is facing drug-related charges after Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers seized more than 52 kg of suspected cocaine from a commercial truck at the Blue Water Bridge port of entry in Ontario.

On Dec. 4, a truck entered Canada at border crossing in Point Edward, Ont., and was referred for a secondary examination. During the inspection of the trailer, border services officers discovered boxes containing the suspected drug.
