MONTREAL (AP) — Canada’s border services agency say it has stumbled upon a different kind of Halloween surprise in some pumpkins this year.

Authorities believe three pumpkins found in a woman’s luggage at the Trudeau International Airport in Montreal airport on Thursday were stuffed with approximately 4.4 pounds of cocaine.

Scanning equipment had detected masses inside the pumpkins. Those masses turned out to be bags filled with the chalky substance.

A border agency spokeswoman was not able to say where the passenger was coming from or whether she was a Canadian citizen.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have taken over the investigation.
