Four pounds of marijuana was found in disinfectant wipes containers seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Cincinnati.
On May 6, officers inspected a shipment from Canada that was heading to a doctor’s office in Barbados. The package was held due to an inconsistency spotted in x-rays, according to CBP.
A drug canine alerted to the package, which contained disinfectant wipe canisters and other cleaning supplies. A search of those canisters and other packages revealed 4 pounds of marijuana.
“The dedication and vigilance of our officers at our express consignment facilities continues to prevent a substantial amount of drugs from reaching their destination,” said Richard Gillespie, port director, Cincinnati. “This is another excellent example of what U.S. Customs and Border Protection does each and every day.”
