Trick or Treat? Canada Seizes Three Cocaine-Filled Pumpkins at Airport

(CNN) — Talk about a spooky Halloween find.

Canadian officials seized three pumpkins from a passenger's bag at the airport.

And boy were they stuffed, they say, with 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of cocaine.

Border agency officers at
the Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport found the
pumpkins while searching the luggage of a female traveler, according to a
news release.

Her identity has not been released.

The Royal Canadian
Mounted Police is conducting an investigation. It did not respond to
CNN's request for additional information Thursday.

Officers at the airport
in Montreal have made 173 drug seizures so far this year, including 10
for cocaine for a total of 44 kilograms, according to border services.
