Million dollar drug shipment concealed in 3,000 fabric-covered buttons from Barbados
Canadian Border authorities arrested a woman coming into Canada on July 17, 2010 but just now released the information. We can’t find the name of the woman being held so we don’t know if she is Barbadian, Canadian or something else.
Can any of our readers provide further information?
“Officials from Canadian Border Services became suspicious of the nearly 3,000 large buttons being flown in from Barbados and questioned the woman.
Police later discovered about 9 kg of cocaine, worth roughly $1 million, concealed inside the buttons.”
