Canada Border Services officers seized more than 100 kilograms of cocaine at the end of September at the Port of Montreal.
According to the authorities, more than 106 kilograms of cocaine were found in one of the containers transported by a ship arriving from the Dominican Republic on 24 September.
“It was during the unloading of the ship that the drug was discovered,” said Dominic McNeely, spokesperson for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
The cocaine was concealed in four bags of nylon and placed in the container, which contained many boxes of men’s shirts.
The drug has been handed over to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which will be responsible for further investigation.
In particular, the police will try to determine who was responsible for this large quantity of cocaine, which has a resale value on the black market of several million dollars.
No arrest has yet been made in this case.
