A Toronto man was arrested Sunday and accused of trying to smuggle 23 pounds of marijuana across the border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Jordan Rodger, 39, was stopped at the Peace Bridge after officers noticed a brown suitcase in the rear of his car.

Officers said Rodger was traveling in his mother’s 2009 Porsche and claimed to be headed into the U.S. to go shopping.

The CBP officer inspecting the car found the suitcase filled with coffee grinds surrounding vacuum sealed bags containing marijuana.
