U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials seized more than 2,027 pounds of marijuana within a trailer of an inbound commercial shipment at the Blue Water Bridge Thursday evening.

Officers referred a commercial shipment carrying food items bound for Columbus, Ohio for an additional examination. During a secondary inspection officers discovered 15 wooden crates containing marijuana.

“Our Officers continue to identify and target suspect shipments attempting to make entry into the United States,” Port Director Michael Fox said in a statement. “The men and women of CBP are committed to keeping illicit substances out of our communities.”

The Detroit Field Office, which covers all ports of entry throughout Michigan, has experienced a surge in contraband since COVID-19 travel restrictions were implemented in March 2020.
