Canadian border officers seized a truck after discovering 23 kilograms of suspected cocaine stashed in hidden compartments while it was at the Abbotsford-Huntingdon crossing on Monday.
Canada Border Service Agency officers discovered the drugs on Dec. 3 while searching a commercial vehicle and trailer carrying a load of produce from California.
During the inspection, officers found anomalies in the trailer's wall.
The cargo was completely unloaded, and when officers drilled holes in the walls of the trailer, they hit a white powder.
Further inspection revealed 23 cellophane-wrapped bricks of suspected cocaine inside a space between the walls.
CBSA has turned the truck, drugs and driver over to the RCMP for further investigation.
In the last five years, border officers in the Pacific Region have seized more than two tonnes of cocaine, according to CBSA.
Faith St John, CBSA spokeswoman, said the cocaine bust is sizable.
"It's not the biggest we have made but it is significant," she said.
Darryl Lavia, the CBSA's Abbotsford-Huntingdon chief of operations, said drug smuggling poses a "grave threat" to the safety of communities.
"CBSA officers work tirelessly to keep illegal drugs and other contraband from entering Canada," said Lavia.
