Around 50 Suspicious Packets Of Narcotics Found On Blue Water Bridge

The authorities of Canada have announced the seizure of 50 bricks of suspected narcotics earlier this month at the Blue Water Bridge.

According to a press release published online on Thursday by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) stated that Ontario resident Guo Bing Zhao, 52-year-old, was driving a semitrailer and reported at the Blue Water Bridge Commercial Operations in Point Edward, Ontario, on November 18.

According to the press release, Zhao was held for a secondary inspection and during the review border services officers noticed an inconsistency in the weight of some of the boxes in the shipment.

Officials reported the boxes were inspected and found to contain 50 packages of suspected narcotics weighing around 50 kilograms total.

Officials caught the suspected narcotics and captured Zhao. According to the release, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) London Detachment Border Integrity Team took charge of the suspect and the evidence.

Zhao was charged by the police with the transportation of a controlled substance and hold for the purpose of trafficking, both opposed to the Controlled Narcotics and Substances Act.

According to the release, Zhao was remanded in custody and he has a hearing scheduled for December 12 at the Ontario Court of Justice in Sarnia, Ontario.

In the press release, Tom Rankin, CBSA St. Clair District Operations district director said that “We are proud of our deputies at the front line who work tirelessly to defend Canadians and keep narcotics out of our communities. This seizing is another example of the continuous cooperation that exists between the CBSA and the RCMP.” 

According to the press release, the investigation of the case is still ongoing.
