An unconscious man was discovered in the Detroit River with 265 pounds of suspected marijuana connected to him with a tow strap, agents said.

The capture occurred in the wee hours Friday near a small island known as Celeron Island.

It’s the latest twist involving a Canadian who was first arrested on May 10 while driving a U-Haul truck in St. Clair County. Glen Mousseau had $97,000.

He told authorities that he had used a submersible to ferry drugs and cash between Michigan and Ontario, according to agents.

Mousseau had agreed to stay at a Flat Rock hotel while the investigation continued. But a federal agent said he disappeared on May 22, leaving behind five phones, a laptop and a suit used by divers.
