FORT ERIE, Ont.—Canadian border police seized 44 pounds of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $2.7 million, that had been concealed in a truck attempting to cross the Peace Bridge, officials announced Friday.

Ontario public safety officials described the seizure as the largest ever made in the Niagara Falls and Fort Erie section of the province.

The drugs were confiscated last Saturday, when a truck driver attempting to cross at the Peace Bridge was referred for secondary inspection, according to a news release from the Canada Border Services Agency.

The driver’s cargo of parts for school buses was unloaded and examined by agency officers, who discovered 20 brick-shaped packages of cocaine hidden within two crates.
