Cocaine bust at Canadian-U.S. border

| 8/14/2009

Border agents in Windsor, Ontario, made one of their biggest drug busts ever Tuesday night, Aug. 11, when they discovered 220 pounds of cocaine in a tractor-trailer crossing into Canada.

Canwest News Service reported the drugs were packaged in bricks and had been placed in bags that were hidden in a load of aluminum coils.

The driver, 37-year-old Kuldeep Dharni of Brampton, Ontario, told officers he picked up the load in Indiana.
