CrimeBrant County man facing charges after 60 bricks of cocaine seized

A man from Brant County is facing charges after 60 bricks of suspected cocaine were seized from his truck at Windsor’s Ambassador Bridge last month.

The Canadian Border Services Agency said in a release that the commercial truck driver entered the country at the port on April 17.

The truck was referred for a secondary inspection and border services officers allegedly found 60 bricks of suspected cocaine in the truck’s cabin, weighing a little over 132 pounds.

Jasbir Singh, 40, of Paris, Ont. is charged with importation of cocaine, and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

“This is exemplary work by our team of dedicated CBSA officers in the Southern Ontario Region,” said Joseph Chayeski, Director of Ambassador Bridge District Operations for CBSA.

“The excellent working partnership we have with the RCMP is a great benefit in fighting organized smuggling efforts and protecting our communities.”

According to the federal government, the CBSA seized over 2.8 million grams of cocaine/crack for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
