Canadian border officials say a truck driver has been arrested after agents found 23 kilograms of suspected cocaine in a truck carrying produce into B.C. from the United States.
The Canada Border Services Agency says the tractor trailer was stopped at the Abbotsford-Huntingdon crossing on Monday.
During a check of the truck, officers became suspicious about the wall of the trailer and unloaded the cargo.
CBSA says when officers drilled holes into the trailer they hit a white powder and discovered 23 bricks of suspected cocaine inside a cavity in the wall.
The driver and the drugs were turned over to the RCMP for further investigation.
