Feds seize almost 370 pounds of cocaine headed to Canada

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Court documents say federal agents seized almost 370 pounds of cocaine hidden in a truck that was preparing to enter Canada at Vermont's Derby Line border crossing.

The documents say the cocaine was found Dec. 7 in a hidden compartment of a truck. The driver of the truck, Jason Nelson, was charged in federal court in Plattsburgh, New York. Nelson is being held pending a detention hearing.

His lawyer did not return a call and email seeking comment.
