    Suspected drug smuggler arrested near Sumas

    SUMAS - A concerned citizen's call to authorities led to the arrest of a Canadian man suspected of smuggling Ecstasy Monday, Feb. 1.

    The caller reported seeing a suspicious person in camouflaged clothing with a backpack near the Silver Lake recreational area, according to Border Patrol.

    Sumas Border Patrol agents responded to the area and found a man with seven bundles of a white powder, which was later identified as a chemical used to make Ecstasy. The powder, which weighed about 65 pounds, was valued at about $300,000, according to the Border Patrol.

    The man and the narcotics were turned over to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement for further investigation.
