The agency said officers searching the vehicle uncovered 1,114 pounds marijuana in vacuum-sealed packages concealed in cardboard boxes and loaded on to wooden pallets within the truck.
The identity of the driver was not released.
“Even during a pandemic, traffickers continue to attempt to exploit our borders and will stop at nothing to try and introduce illicit drugs into our communities,” said port director Michael Fox, who oversees operations at the Port Huron Area Port of Entry.
