Police have seized six million contraband cigarettes in a major bust in St-Anicet, Que. near the Ontario border.

The shipment was found in the 45-foot trailer when the police officers intercepted the smugglers.

RCMP in Valleyfield and the Surete du Quebec made the bust March 3, after receiving a tip concerning illegal activities related to cigarette smuggling.

They seized 600 cases of illegal cigarettes, a semi-trailer, a trailer and a vehicle used to transport tobacco products.

The total value is estimated at $825,000.

The cigarettes were packed in 30,000 Ziploc-type bags.

Two individuals were arrested and could face charges.
