U.S. seizes large ecstasy haul at B.C. border



VANCOUVER (CP) U.S. officials are calling the Thursday seizure of 671,000 tablets of ecstasy at the Washington-British Columbia border part of an increasing new smuggling problem.

"The ecstasy is significant," said Mike Milne, a spokesman for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

"The marijuana . . . weve just kind of gotten used to that over the last few years.

"The new trend were seeing up in western Washington coming down from British Columbia is a rise in ecstasy over the last few years. Its just grown in leaps and bounds," Milne said Friday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized 210 kilograms of the drug as well as 375 kilograms of marijuana as part of a routine check Thursday night at Blaine, Wash., 40 kilometres southeast of Vancouver.

The drugs were found in 21 drums stashed among a total of 128 drums in a truck with Canadian licence plates. The manifest recorded the cargo as shredded scrap plastic.

While the truck driver and passenger were briefly detained, they were later released. No charges have been laid yet, Milne said.

What do they do with all the drugs the seize?

Like the story a while back about 2 TONS of marijuana being found in that tunnel between Mexico/US.

What the hell do they do with 2 TONS when they confiscate it?

I saw the recent Intel Letter regarding this take down..pretty interesting
I think VACIS had found an anomily, thus having the CBP opening each 50 gal drum.
