The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Manitoba seized 406 kg of methamphetamine in Boissevain, on the U.S.-Manitoba border, on January 14. This drug seizure is the largest recorded in the history of the Prairies.

It represents approximately 4 million illicit doses worth more than $50 million.

The forces of The order discovered this large quantity of drugs following the inspection of a semi-trailer at the Boissevain port of entry, in southern Manitoba. The driver was transporting cargo to Winnipeg.

Law enforcement says they spotted suitcases and discovered over 200 bags of methamphetamines.

Manitoba RCMP Federal Police Inspector Joe Telus believes the drugs likely would have been sent to Manitoba, to the rest of the west of Canada and Ontario.

There is no doubt that this cargo would have caused significant damage to the population, he adds. According to our information, the truck is linked to a Manitoba company. We believe the man arrested is an employee, but this is something we need to confirm. Investigators are in contact with the company.

The authorities will try to discover the origin of the methamphetamine, the route of the truck and to determine the market for which the drug was intended.

A 29-year-old man was arrested for drug importation and possession. He is scheduled to appear in the Manitoba Court of Justice on February 1.
