The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers seized 244 kg of suspected cocaine at the Port of Montréal. The narcotics were found on January 30, hidden in a container on a ship coming from Paraguay. Acting on information received by international authorities, the CBSA conducted exhaustive research that led to the container’s identification.  The declared goods were scrap metal. However, an X-ray inspection using mobile HCV-M detection technology showed the presence of a dense mass at the back of the container. When the contents were searched, border services officers discovered 16 metal boxes holding 244 kg of suspected cocaine.
