A Brampton man has been charged after purportedly trying to transport more than 50 kilograms of suspected cocaine through the Blue Water Bridge port of entry in Ontario.

On Wednesday, Manpreet Singh, a 27-year-old resident of Brampton, was identified as the accused by CBSA and RCMP. He is charged with various offenses, including the importation of cocaine under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

In a joint news release from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), officials reported that on December 4, a commercial truck entered Canada at the Blue Water Bridge port of entry in Point Edward, Ontario, and was directed for a secondary examination.

During the inspection, CBSA officers allegedly uncovered boxes containing 52 kg of suspected cocaine, which were confiscated at the border crossing.
