Several suitcases of marijuana seized by Richmond RCMP

UNDERCOVER officers working out of Richmond RCMP YVR Detachment noted unusual behaviour exhibited by a traveller flying out of Vancouver International Airport on June 22.
A Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services (IPDS) unit was activated and assisted in locating approximately 23 kg (50 lbs) of contraband believed to be marijuana packed in several suitcases. The suspect, a male in his early 40s, from Windsor, Ontario, was arrested.
The Richmond RCMP YVR Detachment is continuing their investigation.
“Along with our uniformed patrol officers visible throughout YVR, there are many plainclothes RCMP officers deployed to maintain the safety and security of all the travellers and workers in and around the Vancouver International Airport,” says Cpl. Dennis Hwang. “Kudos to police service dog Hooper, his remarkable nose, and his handler from the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services for their assistance.”
