A Valencia warehouse was the stash site for over 100 pounds of cocaine and $2.5 million in cash that was linked to a pair of Canadian men now facing state drug charges, according to ABC7. The narcotics and money were seized Wednesday night by federal agents, who also arrested the two Torontonians, aged 19 and 32. The plan was allegedly for the men to conceal the coke in produce boxes and transport them back into Canada.
