Drugs with an estimated street-sale value of $5.5 million were seized Thursday from a truck that was hauling steel plating over the Peace Bridge into the United States, federal officials said.

Sixty pounds of the club drug Ecstasy and 1,136 pounds of hydroponic marijuana were found in large trash bags and vacuum-sealed plastic bags hidden among the legitimate freight, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said.
