166 kg of cocaine headed for Quebec seized by US

Federal agents seized 166.6kg (370 pounds) of cocaine that was hidden in a truck preparing to enter Quebec at Vermont’s Derby Line border crossing. The cocaine was found by agents of U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the early morning hours of Dec. 7 with the help of a drug-sniffing dog in a hidden compartment of a commercial truck.
The driver of the Quebec-registered truck and trailer, Jason Nelson, was charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
