TORONTO - The Canada Border Services Agency says 28 kilograms of cocaine was found in a suitcase at Pearson International Airport.

The agency says officers spotted a shrink-wrapped suitcase in baggage that was being removed from a flight that arrived from Cancun, Mexico on Oct. 19.

Officers found 25 bricks containing a substance the agency says tested positive for cocaine.

The packages were turned over to Peel Regional Police, who continue to investigate.
