By The Canadian Press
SAINT JOHN, N.B. - The Canada Border Services Agency has seized about 276 kilograms of cocaine at the Port of Saint John.
The agency is describing the bust as the largest drug seizure by the agency in New Brunswick. Officers discovered the drugs Dec. 11 while searching a 12-metre shipping container that came from Guyana.
Investigators used an X-ray machine and a sniffer dog to find the drugs in 551 cardboard boxes.
Further investigation by the Durham Regional Police in Ontario has led to one arrest.
This is the third seizure of illegal drugs by the agency in Atlantic Canada this year.
