A Quebec man has been charged following the seizure of suspected cocaine in a transport truck at the international border near Sarnia.

A search of the truck revealed the 50 bricks inside the cab.
Officials say the bricks weighed about 50 kilograms.
55 year old Daniel Leduc of St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Quebec is charged with importing a controlled substance, and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
He’s scheduled for a court appearance on Monday in Sarnia.
The investigation is continuing and is being led by the London RCMP Border Integrity Team.
