LEWISTON, N.Y. - Federal officers say they found 21 kilograms of Ecstasy stashed in a car at the U.S. border and arrested its Canadian driver.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection says 77,856 tablets worth $1.5 million were detected with X-ray technology at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge in western New York Feb. 19.
They were in the rear quarter panels wrapped in cellophane, dryer sheets and electrical tape.
The 53-year-old driver, Rawle Younge of Brampton, Ont., said he was on his way to New York City before undergoing a secondary inspection.
He's in custody on charges of importation and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
A niece, Janelle Younge, reached on Monday, said Younge was driving a rental vehicle and doubted the pills were his.
