BAUDETTE, MINN.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) arrested two Valcourt, Quebec, men on March 1, for possessing approximately 958 grams of hash and 11 grams of methamphetamines.
Stephane Grimard and Shawn Menard, both citizens of Canada, were encountered at the Baudette port of entry by CBP officers.
A detailed inspection of the vehicle revealed two bricks of an unknown substance that field tested positive for hashish. Methamphetamine tablets were also discovered in the vehicle.
"This demonstrates the importance of the CBP mission and why our officers take their duties so seriously," said Baudette Port Director Shelly Kraft.
Grimard and Menard were both immediately taken into custody and turned over to the Baudette police department for further investigation and prosecution.
