Then on Sept. 5, RCMP officers went to a business in Mississauga where three men were found dismantling one of those shipments, investigators say.

Police would not directly answer questions about how the shipments they intercepted made their way to the intended addresses, but Sgt. Penny Hermann said in an email that the RCMP "uses various technical investigative tools and methods to lawfully obtain evidence in order to protect Canadians and advance serious criminal investigations.

"We also work closely with our policing partners to provide support and advice on major investigative files," she said. "To maintain the integrity of investigations, we do not disclose specific techniques or tools used in the course of a particular investigation."

A 61-year-old man, a 48-year-old man and a 40-year-old man are now all facing a host of drug charges.

"The RCMP and the CBSA have once again demonstrated a successful outcome of their strong and effective partnership," said RCMP Inspector Barry Dolan, the officer in charge of the Toronto International Airport Detachment, in a statement.

"This cooperation is crucial in keeping illicit drugs off of the streets and keeping Canadians safe. This investigation shows that crime has no borders."
