About 32 kilograms of cocaine disguised as soy milk have been seized by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officials at Montreal's Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport.

The drugs were found last Wednesday in the suitcases of a traveller arriving on a flight from Jamaica.

Officers searched the two suitcases and discovered the drugs hidden inside 63 containers of powdered soy milk.

The powdered contents were tested by officials and determined to contain cocaine.

The traveller was arrested and is facing charges. The investigation has been handed over to the RCMP.

Last year, the border services agency said its officers made 205 drug seizures at Trudeau airport.
