Anonymous tip sinks $3m cocaine shipment at border

More than 60kg of cocaine was seized. An anonymous tip led U.S. Customs officers at the Pacific Highway Truck Crossing in Blaine to an estimated $3m in cocaine. Canadian trucker Ajitpal Singh Sanghera, 41 was busted as he approached the border. During a trailer check, Customs found five handbags containing cocaine.
Sanghera had crossed the US border more than 40 times so far this year. That, coupled with the amount of cocaine, led cops to conclude he was part of a large international drug trafficking ring.
