BLAINE, Wash. — A half-million dollar drug load believed to be headed for Canada was seized last week by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators released photos Wednesday of the drugs seized Sept. 10 in Ferndale at the Grandview Business Center. HSI special agents say they received a tip that led them to the drug find, which included 9 kilograms of methamphetamine and 15 kilograms of cocaine. The drugs have an estimated U.S. street value of $550,000 and a street value of more than $1 million in Canada.

No arrests have been made. The case remains open and ongoing. Anyone with information related to this case should contact HSI's tip line at 1-866-347-2423 (toll-free from the U.S. and Canada).
