Nearly 100 kilograms of cocaine was hidden, according to the statement, and a preliminary investigation suggests the drugs originated from Mexico.

“This significant quantity of drugs was intercepted before it could reach our communities,” reads the release.

The RCMP said the two men could soon be facing criminal charges.

As the full investigation is still underway, the RCMP is asking the public to share any information that could assist with any further developments in the case.
