A man from Chatham, Ont., was taken into custody after officers allegedly found more than 100 kilograms of marijuana in duffel bags under a truck at the Windsor-Detroit border crossing.

Officials say the commercial truck was pulled over for inspection Nov. 10 and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers detected something hidden under the trailer.

Officers removed several duffel and garbage bags and sniffing dogs indicated they contained narcotics, which turned out to be marijuana.

The driver, a 55-year-old Chatham man, was turned over to the Border Enforcement Security Task Force for further processing and prosecution.

A Homeland Security spokesman has been unavailable for comment on possible charges. The man's name has not been released.
