A Mississauga resident is facing charges after a drug bust at the Ambassador Bridge on Christmas Eve.

It was on December 24th, 2019, that a commercial truck entered Canada through the Ambassador Bridge and was referred for a secondary examination. During the examination, border services officers discovered nine containers filled with approximately 200 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine.

This seizure constitutes the largest methamphetamine seizure, on record, for the CBSA within the past seven years. The CBSA estimates the value of the suspected methamphetamine at over $25.5 million.

The CBSA arrested the driver and seized the suspected narcotics. The RCMP attended and took custody of the subject as well as the evidence.
The RCMP charged Mohamed Ahmed Abdirahman, 36, with the importation of a controlled substance, contrary to the controlled drugs and substances act and possession for the purpose of trafficking, contrary to the controlled drugs and substances act.

Abdirahman’s next scheduled court date is February 3rd, 2020.
