Two Canadian truckers, Sandeep & Karanpreet Singh, are being charged in Michigan for allegations of attempting to smuggle drugs from the U.S. to Canada. During a random stop, Customs and Border Protection officers found drugs, which were later found to be d-methamphetamine hydrochloride, under the bottom bunk inside the truck. K-9’s were then used to find more contraband, 45 bags of methamphetamine.
An affidavit states that the amounts found are “consistent with large-scale drug smuggling/distribution. Commercial truck drivers are actively involved in smuggling methamphetamine from the U.S. into Canada and are paid approximately $500 – $750 per kilogram smuggled.” It also states, “Commercial truck drivers involved with methamphetamine smuggling typically receive under 40 kilograms to smuggle per occasion, unless they have completed multiple successful smuggling ventures.”
