200 kilos of hash found in chocolate
HALIFAX (CP) - Officials say an attempt to smuggle 200 kilograms of hash by hiding it in chocolate bars was foiled by border officers and an X-ray machine in Halifax. A Mississauga, Ont., man is facing multiple charges after the discovery in a shipping container at the city’s port. The Canada Border Services Agency said 51-year-old Owen Jagasar was charged with drug possession and importation June 23.
The agency says the drugs were concealed in 100 chocolate bars, each containing two kilograms of hidden hashish, and were seized at the port on May 25.
The CBSA, acting on a tip, “noted anomalies in X-ray images while examining a marine container.” The shipment originated in the Netherlands bound for Ontario..
