The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is committed to safeguarding our country and works closely with our international partners to prevent illicit drug smuggling at our borders.

Today, the CBSA announced the seizure of 140 kilograms of methamphetamine at the Tsawwassen Container Examination Facility in British Columbia. The shipment was identified based on intelligence provided by the New Zealand Police and New Zealand Customs Service.

On March 30, 2023, CBSA officers conducted an examination of a container that was bound for export and believed to be destined for New Zealand. With the assistance of the Metro Vancouver District Detector Dog Service, officers discovered a white, crystal-like substance in the machine which was tested and returned positive for methamphetamine.

Multiple CBSA units, including teams in the Metro Vancouver District, Metro Vancouver District Marine Commercial Operations and Pacific Region Intelligence Section, collaborated with New Zealand Police and New Zealand Customs Service on this successful interception.

The investigation has been referred to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in British Columbia.
