The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a historic drug bust in Vancouver that included close to 2,500 kgs of opium. CBSA announced the results of this joint investigation today, but it was launched in September with the RCMP’s Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit. On October 25, 2022, the CBSA’s Metro Vancouver Marine Operations conducted an examination of goods within 19 marine containers based on the investigation. Using a wide range of detection tools and technology, including X-ray technology, officers discovered irregularities in the shipping pallets as part of a deep concealment method. Further physical examination confirmed approximately 2,486 kilograms of opium within 247 shipping pallets.
