Border agents find big marijuana cache in truck entering USPosted by On

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – Border agents found nearly 9500 pounds (4,300 kilograms) of marijuana hidden in a commercial truck entering Buffalo from Canada in the biggest drug seizure on record at the northern border, authorities said Monday.

The driver, Prabjot Nagra, faces federal charges after an X-ray of his trailer at the Peace Bridge on June 25 revealed irregularities that led Customs and Border Protection officers to examine its contents. They found wooden shipping containers holding 8,320 vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana valued at $20 million.

It was the third big marijuana seizure at the Peace Bridge this month and continues a sharp spike in seizures at ports of entry throughout New York.
