Abbotsford Police made the largest cocaine bust in the department's history after seizing 60 kilograms of the suspected drugs on Saturday morning.
The 60 bricks of cocaine likely have a street value between $1.5 to $1.8 million, said Constable Ian MacDonald.
A 24-year-old man is in custody and facing charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Patrol officers made the bust after noticing the suspect loitering in a parking lot with two duffle bags in the 2,000 block of Clearbrook Road at 7:45 a.m. Saturday morning.
The officers approached the man, noticed the bags were padlocked and had a conversation about the bags, said MacDonald.
"He provides answers that don't make sense, which leads to a search of the bags, and lo and behold we find 60 kilograms of suspected cocaine," he said.
"It's a record amount of coke for us."
The suspect, who hails from out of province but has recently been living in the Fraser Valley, doesn't have a criminal record, said MacDonald.
"He's had some negative police contacts but I wouldn't suggest he's a high flier here or out of province."
The APD is continuing to investigate the details of he case, said MacDonald.
"At this point we have more questions than answers," he said.
"But the good news is that a large quantity of cocaine has been taken off the streets."
