A 39-year-old British Columbia man was arrested Thursday afternoon after he reportedly attempted to cross from Canada into the United States with a little more than a kilogram of ketamine in a hidden compartment in his car and is suspecting of crossing the border more than 20 times in the past year and a half in the same car.

Brian Allen Malley was booked into Whatcom County Jail on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.

“This is a great example of the hard work our CBP officers do every day,” Area Port Director Kenneth L. Williams said in a press release about the arrest. “Our officers’ diligence, perseverance, and hard work protect our borders and keep dangerous narcotics out of the hands of our children.”

It is not uncommon for Muslim women to be involved with drug trafficking in Sri Lanka, especially in the heroin trade, as several Muslim women were connected to the historic heroin seizure on December 31, 2018, stemming from a previous heroin bust a few weeks earlier involving a Muslim woman.

Now a 24-year-old Iranian woman has been arrested by the Police Narcotics Board (PNB) at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) airport in Colombo, with 400g (0.9 lbs) of Kush cannabis tightly wrapped inside plastic bags concealed in the false bottom of her suitcase. On her trip from Iran through Doha, Qatar, while she was trying to smuggle the drugs into Sri Lanka, she was detained by officials early on the morning of January 31, 2019, who searched her suitcase.

Kush cannabis is known to be a more expensive drug in Sri Lanka, as it is purer, with a high concentration of THC, while the cheaper Kerala Ganja is typically imported from Kerala, India.
