Two Arrested After Suspected Cocaine Found in Interesting Item at Pearson Airport


Two travellers were arrested after a seizure of cocaine at Pearson Airport recently.

According to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), on March 22, 2018, two people traveling from Jamaica went through a secondary inspection for a routine baggage inspection.

“During the examination, officers discovered the individuals each had six containers, declared as coffee, in their luggage,” said CBSA in a recent statement.

According to CBSA, the officers opened the “coffee” containers and found a white powder that tested positive as suspected cocaine.

CBSA says over seven kilograms of the substance was seized, and the individuals were subsequently arrested. 

Both the suspected cocaine and the travellers have been turned over to the RCMP.
