UPDATE: (AUGUST 13, 2020) OVER 8 MILLION DOLLARS OF CANNABIS SEIZED AT BUFFALO’S PEACE BRIDGE.

2,959 pounds of cannabis has been seized at the Peace Bridge, the largest bust to date in the history of the USA – Canadian border crossing located in Buffalo, New York. On July 22, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents discovered the cannabis in the tractor trailer of a 45-year-old Canadian man, disguised as boxes of cement products.

Authorities discovered 12 wooden pallets containing the marijuana in vacuum-sealed packages. The shipment has an estimated value of $6 million United States dollars.

“Since travel restrictions began at the border, we have continued to see criminal organizations attempt to exploit perceived vulnerabilities, especially in the commercial environment,” said Port Director Jennifer De La O in the CBP’s official press release.

“I am extremely proud of our CBP officers who have remained vigilant and enforcement focused during these unprecedented times.  Their selfless efforts have yet again led to an impressive seizure of narcotics preventing these drugs from entering our communities.”

After being denied entry into the United States, the driver returned to Canada while he awaits further investigation.

This seizure is one of many to hit the port of Buffalo since an October 2019 crackdown began, resulting in over 1,500 narcotic seizures of more than 23,500 pounds in total.
