Ecstasy becomes agony for border drug smugglers
Border Patrol agents at the Blaine crossing this morning seized more than 37 pounds of ecstasy pills valued at $1.2 million from a car.
Border Patrol agents saw two people run from Canada through Peace Arch Park and climb into a vehicle on the U.S. side of the border. The agents followed the vehicle south and stopped it on Interstate 5. Inside, they found a gym bag containing the pills.
The two people who were seen entering the U.S. illegally were arrested and will be charged with drug smuggling, according to the Border Patrol. The Drug Enforcement Administration took custody of the suspects and drugs.
