A Mississauga man has been arrested following the seizure of 37 kilograms of suspected cocaine at the Ambassador Bridge by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

On Dec. 27, a lone male driver hauling a load of fruit arrived at the bridge. After initial questioning by the CBSA, the truck and trailer was referred for a secondary examination. During the subsequent inspection, a border services officer discovered 30 bricks of possible cocaine concealed in the trailer.

The RCMP have charged the lone male under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act with importation of cocaine and possession for the purpose of trafficking. The accused is scheduled to appear in court in late January 2017.
