Truck Driver Charged For Possessing 100 Pounds Of Cocaine

TORONTO, (IANS) – A 27-year-old commercial truck driver has been charged after authorities seized more than 100 pounds of cocaine in the Canadian province of Ontario.

Manpreet Singh, a resident of Brampton, was taken into custody by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and formally charged with the importation of cocaine and possession of cocaine for trafficking, CP24 news channel reported.

According to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Singh’s truck entered the country at the Blue Water Bridge port of entry in Point Edward, Ontario, and was referred for a secondary examination.

While inspecting the vehicle’s trailer, border services officers allegedly found and seized boxes containing 100 pounds of cocaine.

The CBSA subsequently arrested Singh on December 4, and handed him over to the RCMP, the news report said. His case is now before the court.

“The RCMP works collaboratively with CBSA to protect Canadians from threats identified at our borders. This is another example of the tremendous work being done by our agencies to keep illegal drugs from reaching the streets in our communities,” Superintendent Rae Bolsterli, of the RCMP’s Border Integrity Program, said in a release.

  • Manpreet Singh worked hard, and he could not save much money, he had debts to pay for entering the western world to traffickers in India, so the easy way out is drug business. Canada is lenient to Sikh community, so the PM of Canada will set him free soon. He will be home for Christmas and new year party.
