MONTREAL — The Mounties have seized a container packed with enough hashish to intoxicate the entire country.
Police in Montreal discovered seven tonnes of hashish — or about seven million grams.
The dark-brown, laptop-sized hash bricks were discovered in an abandoned trailer in the city’s west end.
RCMP Cpl. Luc Thibault says the slabs of hash had been shrouded in denim clothing and stuffed into cardboard boxes.
He says the entire trailer was crammed with the drug.
Thibault says this is one of the biggest hash seizures his detachment can remember.
He says police received a call about the mysterious trucking container after it had been sitting in a suburban storage lot for several days.
Thibault says police have not made any arrests, but are investigating.
RCMP are reaching out to the public for leads.
