Police make large cocaine bust at Saskatoon airport
Two women have been arrested for trying to smuggle more than a kilogram of cocaine through the Saskatoon airport.
Estevan police along with Saskatchewan's Federal Integrated Organized Crime Units caught the women as they were entering the terminal Thursday at about 8 p.m. CST.
Police said a 23-year-old woman and a 19-year-old had just arrived on a flight from British Columbia.
Right before the arrest officers seized 1.2 kilograms of cocaine, which they estimate to be worth about $200,000.
Both women have been released from custody. Charges against them are pending.
The investigation continues.
