"The RCMP Federal Police Transnational Serious and Organized Crime (TSOC) team from the Kitchener detachment, with the assistance of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the Brantford Police Service and Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), have unraveled a sophisticated international drug importation scheme leading to multiple charges against three individuals.
The investigation began in the fall of 2021, after CBSA Intelligence received information about exported shipments originating from Central America. The CBSA, in partnership with RCMP's TSOC team, worked to identify the shipments and the individuals involved. In December 2021, the CBSA began tracking a marine shipping container of interest exported from Central America with a final destination of Saint John, NB. The investigation revealed that the container's contents were imported by a Brantford resident."
