Abbotsford Police make record cocaine seizure

Abbotsford Police announced Monday that officers had made a record seizure of cocaine over the weekend. In a news release, Const. Ian MacDonald said the department’s patrol division came upon a man in a parking lot in the 2000 block of Clearbrook Road about 7:45 am Saturday.
He was in possession of two medium-sized duffle bags, which had padlocks on them.
When police asked him about the bags, he was unable to explain why they had the locks on them
“A search of those bags revealed numerous packaged bricks of what is suspected to be approximately 60 kilograms of cocaine,” MacDonald said.
 The 24-year old was arrested for possession for the purposes of trafficking. The investigation is continuing.
“This represents the largest cocaine seizure in the department’s history,” MacDonald said.
NOTE: I was off Monday and skiiing and NOT on this blog, so am just going through comments now.
And this CP story about the Asian crime boss was really fascinating. Hopefully I can cover the immigration hearing later this month.
