U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Peace Bridge on Wednesday seized 2,554 pounds of marijuana in a commercial shipment.

Customs officers selected for additional examination a commercial shipment that was labeled "bathroom vanities." The vehicle containing the shipment was sent for a non-intrusive examination that revealed anomalies and was subsequently sent to the commercial vehicle inspection area where officers conducted a physical inspection of the shipment.

Inside, officers found pallet shipment boxes containing 2,302 vacuum-sealed packages that field-tested positive for the properties of marijuana. Customs officers estimated the street value of the seizure at $5 million.
