Cocaine Bust in Alberta

Cocaine bust in Alberta
At the Sweetgrass / Coutts border crossing into Alberta a transport truck was
pulled over for secondary screening because the driver was on the CBSA radar
as suspected of involvement in drug trafficking. During inspection the CBSA
border officers came across 83 one-kilogram bundles of cocaine stashed in
different locations within the cab area. The cocaine, valued at $5 million, was
found behind the microwave, under a mattress, in a duffel bag and inside the two
jockey boxes. Upon the truck being returned from the impound lot to the truck’s
owner, there was a further 17 one-kilogram packages that had apparently not
been found during inspection at the border. The 54-year-old driver was from
British Columbia and the junior driver, 32 years old, resides in Ontario. The
younger driver was new to Canada and to trucking, barely spoke English and
needed a translator during the inspection, questioning and trial. Both drivers
claimed that they were completely unaware of the cocaine being in the truck.
During the trial it was concluded that there was not enough hard evidence such
as DNA or fingerprints to prove beyond reasonable doubt that these two drivers
had anything to do with the placement of the cocaine in the truck. It was
concluded that the younger driver’s charges of possession with the intent to
traffic and importation of drugs into Canada were dismissed and the senior
driver, 54, his charges were stopped due to his passing away. I chose not to
identify names in this article out of respect to the families related to the death of
one of the drivers.

This is a similar testament that I am having alongside me and it has been something to be thankful for that I have done this certificate. It has been helping me a ton to get the things that I have for the longest time been itching to get along.
