The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) are committed to keeping communities safe from illicit narcotics.

On August 1, 2022, a commercial truck entered Canada at the Ambassador Bridge port of entry in Windsor, Ontario, and was referred for a secondary examination. During the inspection of the cab, border services officers discovered a duffle bag containing 28 bricks of suspected cocaine, weighing approximately 30 kg.

The CBSA arrested the driver and passenger and seized the suspected narcotics. The RCMP took custody of the subjects and the evidence.

The RCMP took conduct of the investigation and have formally charged Narinder Singh, 50, and Harpreet Singh, 31, both of Winnipeg, Manitoba, with:

  • Importation of cocaine, contrary to Section 6(1) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
  • Possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, contrary to Section 5(2) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Their next scheduled court date is on September 19, 2022 at the Ontario Court of Justice in Windsor, Ontario.

The investigation is ongoing.
