HIGHGATE SPRINGS, Vt. (AP) — Customs agents at a U.S.-Canadian border crossing in Vermont seized greater than 1,400 pounds (635 kilograms) of marijuana hidden inside kitchen cabinets, U.S. Customs and Border Protection mentioned Tuesday.
The marijuana was found Monday after border officers chosen the truck carrying the cabinets for nearer examination when it tried to enter the United States from Canada at Highgate Springs.
It was the biggest marijuana seizure in New England in current years. It had an estimated avenue worth of greater than $3 million.
Last June U.S. border agents in Buffalo, New York, seized about 9,500 pounds (4,300 kilograms) of marijuana, the biggest marijuana seizure ever on the U.S.-Canadian border.
While the U.S.-Canadian border is closed to most routine crossings, business visitors is allowed to cross between the 2 nations.
