VANCOUVER - Five men linked to organized crime have been arrested in the largest-ever Canadian bust involving the date- rape drug ketamine.
More than 1000 kilos of ketamine, worth an estimated $15 million, were intercepted last month by the Canada Border Services Agency.
CBSA official Colleen Pinvidic said the white powder was vacuum sealed in bags and secreted in boxes containing mugs that arrived at the Port of Vancouver in a container from Hong Kong.
"This is the largest seizure ever made in Canada of ketamine," Pinvidic said.
Suspicious CBSA agents both x-rayed and searched manually until they found the ketamine hidden under the mugs in 84 of the 402 boxes.
