FERNDALE, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a tip led federal agents and Whatcom County deputies to $550,000 in cocaine and methamphetamine stashed in an unoccupied unit at a business center north of Ferndale, Washington.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://is.gd/0zxzZj ) that officers found 33 pounds of cocaine and nearly 20 pounds of meth on Sept. 10.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Andrew Munoz says agents believe the drugs were en route to Canada.

So far, no one has been arrested although the sheriff’s office says it is seeking several “persons of interest.”
