MONTREAL — Border services officers say they have seized more than 1,300 kilograms of hashish at the Port of Montreal.

The Canada Border Services Agency says the drugs were found Dec. 10 in a marine container filled with boards of floating floor and wooden handcrafted furniture.

The hashish was concealed inside laminated floor pieces and was detected by River, a seven-year-old Labrador retriever trained to find drugs and firearms.

There were 3,046 packets of the drug.

The container had come from Malawi.

No arrests have been made as of yet.
