Bottles of bright orange hot sauce had an unusual travel companion on the freighter bringing them here from Guyana recently. Thin packets of cocaine worth a total of $40 million were taped to cardboard dividers in boxes of the sauce destined for a food distribution company in Etobicoke. The shipment — one of the largest drug busts in Ontario history — was seized two weeks ago in Saint John, N.B., police said yesterday. The hiding method was “very ingenious,” said Det. Sgt. Mario Lessard of Durham Region police. “I’ve never seen it before.” The 276-kilogram seizure of high-quality cocaine followed a year-long investigation into the source of drugs found on street gang members and drug users. A man was arrested last Friday after unloading all 1,250 boxes at a rented storage facility in Etobicoke.
