CBP Seizes 240 Pounds of Cocaine

Drugs found in commercial vehicle crossing into Montana.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents recently seized 240 pounds of cocaine on the U.S.-Canadian Border at the Sweetgrass Port of Entry in Montana. A Canadian male driving a commercial truck was arrested after the discovery of the drugs during an in-depth inspection operation.

“Our frontline CBP officers utilized their training and experience along with our high-tech tools and that effective combination led to the seizure of 240 pounds of cocaine in the cargo environment,” said Sweetgrass Port of Entry Area Port Director Jason Greene. “The ability to facilitate lawful trade and travel while maintaining a robust enforcement focus is a critical element to our border security mission.”

  • For the Department of Homeland Security as it oversees protective measures for the nation.
  • For the CBP agents working to prevent contraband from entering the country.
