DETROIT (WKZO) -- New statistics show that more cocaine is seized at the Ambassador Bridge than any other border crossing with Canada.

According to a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News, 13 cocaine busts made by the Canadian Border Services Agency over the past six years have netted over 91.5-million dollars.  The report also shows that marijuana was seized the most often at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel and accounted for 48-thousand of the 86-thousand dollars confiscated at the crossing.

Overall, drug busts rose roughly ten-percent between 2007 and 2012 at the Detroit-Windsor crossings.
