Agents make record meth bust at southern Alberta border
CBSA says it seized approximately $28.5M worth of methamphetamine after searching a semi-truck on Christmas
Canadian Border Services says agents seized over 228 kg of methamphetamine worth an estimated $28.5 million at the Coutts crossing in southern Alberta on Christmas Day.
According to the agency, the haul would have produced 2.28 million individual doses of meth.
"This is the CBSA's largest seizure of methamphetamine at a land border crossing on record across Canada," the agency said in a news release.
The discovery was made after a semi-truck hauling produce was referred for further inspection.
The case was turned over to the RCMP who have since charged the driver, Amarpreet Singh Sandhu, 38, from Calgary, with one count of importation of a controlled substance and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
