Spokesman Andrew Munoz says the two made an initial appearance Thursday in federal court in Seattle on charges they conspired to distribute the drug.
The spokesman says Harminder Singh Rai, 35, of Surrey, British Columbia, and Tuan Van Dang, 38, of San Diego, were arrested separately on Wednesday after an investigation by the Blaine Border Enforcement Security Task Force.
Court records say agents followed Rai after he entered the United States at Blaine and picked up a duffel bag from Dang at a Marysville motel. Rai was stopped at the border on his return trip to Canada. Court documents say the cocaine was found in his vehicle.
Dang was arrested in Bellingham.
