U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Champlain Port of Entry Cargo Facility seized more than 1,545 lbs. of marijuana in a commercial shipment.
On January 20, CBP officers encountered a commercial shipment that was manifested as used reels, and selected the shipment for further examination. During the secondary inspection, a canine team alerted to the presence of narcotics within the shipment. CBP officers then performed a thorough physical examination and discovered six pallets containing vacuum–sealed packages of marijuana. The vacuum-sealed packages field-tested positive for the properties of marijuana and have an estimated street value of $3.2 million.
