TORONTO – It looks like drug smugglers think there is lax checking at the Canadian border but despite the COVID-19 pandemic  there is no such thing as relaxed standards as two Indo-Canadian truckers found out the hard way after they were caught trying to smuggle millions worth of cocaine at the Windsor, Ontario border.

The two Ontario men are now facing drug charges after being caught trying to import almost $5 million worth of cocaine at the U.S.-Canadian border in Ontario.

Sukdeep Singh, 31, of Brampton and Inderjeet Singh, 26, of Lindsay, Ont., have been charged with importing a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Canadian Border Services Agents say a commercial truck attempted to enter Canada at the Ambassador Bridge on March 17. During a secondary examination of the vehicle, officers discovered cocaine mixed in with a commercial load of citrus fruit.

The CBSA said 38 kilograms of cocaine worth almost $5-million was seized.

The two are scheduled to appear in a Windsor court on June 8.
