BLAINE, Wash. (AP) - A Canadian man with more than 93,000 ectasy tablets in the vehicle he was driving was arrested at Blaine by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers during the weekend.
A news release today said the estimated street value of the ectasy is $1.4 million.
U.S. customs and Border Protection reports Jamie Alphonse Cadorette, of Burnaby, British Columbia, was arrested Saturday about 6 p.m. at the Peace Arch port of entry.
The agency says officers discovered about 35 pounds of ectasy tablets in the rear speaker of a 1986 Honda Civic.
In addition, it reports two U.S. citizens were arrested attempting to take delivery of the ectasy.
The agency says Cadorette, 29-year-old Brian John Coll and 42-year-old Anthony Kwan Drawhorn made their initial appearance today in U.S. District Court in Seattle. Coll and Drawhorn are from Los Angeles.
