Suspected cocaine found in airplane bathroom in Toronto


More than nine kilograms of suspected cocaine has been seized from an airplane washroom at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Members of the Canada Border Service Agency searched a flight arriving from the Dominican Republic on Dec. 20.

Officers found eight brick-shaped objects in the airplane lavatory. The objects tested positive for cocaine.

The drugs were turned over to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Police did not specify if anyone has been charged in connection with the incident.

In 2017, CBSA officers in the Greater Toronto Area made 131 seizures of suspected cocaine weighing in at nearly 900 kilograms.
