Members of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), with support from the RCMP, made two significant seizures of suspected cocaine at Toronto’s Pearson Airport.
Officials say on June 18, a search of a woman’s belongings, arriving on a flight from Jamaica, revealed six food packages which contained 6.6 kilograms of suspected cocaine. They estimate the packages had a value of about $825,000.
Less than a week later, another woman, arriving on a flight from Jamaica was examined by CBSA officials. They say her belongings revealed 3.85 kilograms of suspected cocaine secreted in eight food packages. Officials estimate the value for this seizure is $447,500.
Both women were arrested and, along with the suspected cocaine, were turned over to the RCMP.
Mavis Coreta Segree, 76, of Etobicoke, and Amran Jama, 31 of Hamilton are facing charges.
