Man Caught with 55 Pounds of Meth and $126K on Bridge from Canada to Michigan
Holy hell that is a lot of meth! A 42-year-old man was caught by Canada Border Services Agency with a buttload of cash and meth.
On May 2nd, Branislav Barac was arrested at the Blue Water Bridge between Port Huron and Sarnia, Ontario. While trying to cross the border, officials decided to send his semi-truck to a second examination. When they scanned the truck with a large imaging x-ray they discovered that something was off and went in for a search, which included a detector dog.
The search revealed what Barac was trying to smuggle over the border. Officials found 23 clear wrapped packages of methamphetamine and two envelopes containing a total of $126,000 in U.S. currency. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are charging him with seven counts, which include importing a controlled substance, failure to report the importation of currency greater than $10,000, and more. Thankfully that 55 pounds of meth will not see the streets here in Michigan.
