The Canada Border Services Agency has made its largest seizure of illegal narcotics in prairie history, seizing over $50 million in meth at the Boissevain border crossing.
CBSA officers made the discovery on Jan. 14 while examining a commercial truck at the Boissevain Port of entry.
Inside the vehicle, officers located and seized 406.2 kg of suspected methamphetamine, approximately 4 million illicit doses valued at over $50,780,000 destined for Winnipeg.
The driver was arrested by the CBSA and transferred to the Manitoba RCMP along with the suspected narcotics.
"Without a doubt, their [CBSA] work has made an impact and will stem the availability of this incredibly dangerous drug. A drug that has already impacted many lives," said Manitoba RCMP Federal Policing Unit Insp. Joe Telus.
The driver of the truck, a 29-year-old man from Winnipeg has been charged with numerous offences.
He is scheduled to appear in court today.
