Third Indian caught in a month while smuggling marijuana in Canada

An Indian man has been caught allegedly smuggling millions of dollars of

marijuana from Canada to the United States.

This is the third Indian arrested for smuggling in last month.

Authorities said on Monday that 26-year-old Prabjot Nagra was

caught bringing 4,294 kilograms of marijuana worth $ 20 million in a

commercial truck across the Peace Bridge connecting the two countries

near Niagara Falls.

Customs and border security officials have seized several tons of illegal

substances for the third time in past weeks, said James Kennedy, a federal

prosecutor for western New York. According to the accused, 21-year-old

Arshadip Singh was arrested

on 5th June while smuggling 816 kg of marijuana for $ 2.5 million and 30-year-old

Gurpreet Singh on June 13 while smuggling 1,517 kg of marijuana for $ 5

million.

Officials said that like Nagra, they too are Indian nationals and were also

caught near Niagara Falls.

Nagra and Gurpreet Singh could be sentenced to

10 years in prison and Arshadip Singh for 5 years for allegedly smuggling

large amounts.
