Over 2 pounds of ketamine seized near Canadian border in Blaine

Over two pounds of ketamine were seized by Blaine Sector Border Patrol agents on Sunday, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

The seizure took place in a remote area near the border with Canada.

Just after midnight on Sept. 18, agents found a person illegally crossing the border in a remote area east of Sumas.

While searching his bag, agents found a plastic bag with a drug that tested positive for ketamine.

“Blaine Sector Border Patrol agents secure and protect our nation with diligence and hard work,” said Chief Patrol Agent David S. BeMiller. “Their commitment to keep dangerous drugs out of our communities is admirable. This seizure is a step in the right direction.”
