RCMP have charged two Toronto-area men they say smuggled about 44 litres of liquid cocaine into the Port of Halifax by hiding it in orange juice cartons.

The Mounties say customs officers noticed the cartons while inspecting a sea container carrying food products from Trinidad and Tobago on Nov. 16.

RCMP say they linked the shipment to two men, who were arrested on Nov. 26. Details of the investigation are only now being released.

Norris Williams, 46, of Whitby, Ont., and Lincoln Strachan, 46, of Mississauga, Ont., are both charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, importing drugs into Canada, and conspiracy.

They are due back in court Jan. 22.

RCMP say that amount of liquid cocaine is roughly equivalent to 24 kilograms of powdered cocaine.
