Something's fishy in Toronto; CBSA seizes 4kgs of heroin in frozen fish shipment
Canada Border Services Agency officials found packages of heroin in cargo of flight from Pakistan
Canada Border Services Agency says there was something fishy about a shipment inspected at Toronto's airport — and it wasn't just the frozen fish.
CBSA says officers at Pearson International Airport were conducting a routine examination of cargo arriving off a flight from Lahore, Pakistan, on Tuesday when they discovered suspected heroin.
Officials say officers found two small packages deep within a large shipment of frozen fish that were similarly wrapped and loosely placed inside the contents.
The packages were cut open and the contents tested positive for heroin.
A total of four kilograms of heroin was seized and turned over to the RCMP.
