One man faces a number of charges after a drug bust at the Ambassador Bridge.

Border officials say that on August 4, they seized over 115 lbs. of cocaine, along with nearly 50 lbs. of meth in a truck carrying a shipment of produce from California.

The Canadian Border Services Agency says they had to remove a number of interior panels in the vehicle before discovering the drugs.

Wayne Douglas Rutherford, 61, of Colborne, Ontario, will appear in a Windsor courtroom September 9.
