The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) discovered 345 bags of cannabis hidden within a container heading to the Caribbean on August 29. 

The shipment containing 435 hidden packages of cannabis was found by border service officers who were inspecting a marine container. The RCMP says the investigation is ongoing.

“This seizure demonstrates the continued hard work and dedication of CBSA officers at the Port of Halifax. By targeting and examining containers leaving Canada, we are able to intercept contraband goods before they leave the country. I am extremely proud of all those involved,” said Dominic Mallette, acting regional director general for the Atlantic Region of CBSA said in a press release.
