Ontario man arrested for trying to sneak meth across Rainbow Bridge

NIAGARA FALLS – A 21-year-old Ontario man was arrested Thursday for allegedly trying to sneak more than five pounds of methamphetamine into Canada over the Rainbow Bridge, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents reported.

Karone Johnson, of Thorold, was arrested because, during a random inspection of his car at the bridge, agents found the speaker system of his car looked questionable. An inspection found that five packages of what later proved to be methamphetamines had been hidden inside the speaker system. Johnson was turned over the Homeland Security investigators for prosecution.
