CBSA finds 22 kilos of heroin at Pearson International Airport

Mississauga, Ontario, November 5, 2012 – The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) today announced a significant seizure of heroin at the Pearson International Airport in Toronto.

On October 30, 2012, border services officers identified a suspicious box offloaded from a flight from Pakistan. Upon examination, officers noted that the box showed visible tampering. The box was opened and officers found multiple solid packets inside that tested positive for heroin. Officers seized approximately 22 kilograms of heroin with an estimated value of $8.8 million.

In 2012 thus far, CBSA officers working in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) region’s airports, postal and cargo processing facilities have seized over 106 kilograms of suspected heroin with an estimated value of over $42 million.

“This significant seizure speaks to the vigilance and expertise of our officers at our ports of entry,” said Goran Vragovic, CBSA Regional Director General of the GTA Region. “In preventing the smuggling of deadly narcotics such as heroin, border services officers are a crucial first step in stopping these drugs from making it to our streets and corrupting the safety of our communities.”

The seized narcotics were turned over to the Peel Regional Police for further investigation.
