RCMP say just over 200 kg of cocaine was seized in a drug importation investigation in southern Alberta that focused on commercial vehicles.

The drugs were seized at the Coutts border crossing on three separate dates.

During the first seizure on Sept. 2, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers searched a commercial truck entering Canada with a load of televisions.

According to the RCMP, officers discovered 60 packages of cocaine weighing 69 kg stashed in the vehicle.

The second seizure was two days later, on Sept. 4. CBSA officers searched a truck containing a shipment of novelty items.

According to RCMP, concealed within the load were 34 packages of cocaine.

Tejinderpal Singh Sandhu, 34, is charged with importing a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

The third seizure took place on Oct. 10. According to the RCMP, CBSA officers found 83 bricks of cocaine hidden throughout the cab of a commercial vehicle carrying produce.

Jasmail Singh Sander, 53, of British Columbia, and Parmjeet Singh Sandhu, 31, of Ontario, are charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and importing a controlled substance.

In all three instances, the commercial trucks were operating for commercial trucking companies based in British Columbia.
