$ 500 was paid to import 64 kg of coke

A Montrealler who was paid $ 500 for importing 64 kilograms of coke was found guilty Wednesday, even though he thought it was tobacco bricks.

“Given the large amount of cocaine in question and the value it can represent, it is permissible to assume that such a quantity of narcotics would not have been handed over to a person who did not know the nature of the contents of the bags.”

The 35-year-old found himself in an April 2019 police cross-chair.

While checking the container that arrived by boat to the port of Montreal, 64 kilos of coke hidden in drawers in cardboard boxes in the hands of federal police were found.

While checking the container that arrived by boat to the port of Montreal, 64 kilos of coke hidden in drawers in cardboard boxes in the hands of federal police were found.

The previous week, a ship from Mexico to the port of Montreal had attracted attention. During the search, border guards found cocaine hidden in a cupboard in a container.

Announcing the situation, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police decided to carry out controlled childbirth on the street to set a trap for the suspects behind the import of more than $ 2.5 million worth.

Officers seized 84 to 86% pure 64 bricks powder and instead … Brown Sugar.

This container was brought to the warehouse in Montreal. It was then that Danzio arrived at the scene with an accomplice to retrieve the drugs with the hockey bags they had purchased. He should get $ 500 for this job.

But Judge Dubras said the “panic” occurred when the accused wanted to find the brown sugar and leave.

After a while the police came to arrest them.

“We just got it Buster “, Then heard the sirens of emergency vehicles and knocked down Tonsiu.

According to the testimony he gave during his interrogation, he did not understand why the accused was sent that way because he firmly believed that it was tobacco.

He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture, and that his confession had been obtained through torture.

However, Judge Dubras did not trust his version, especially the evidence collected from the defendant’s two cell phones.

Tudor Tonsiu and a partner have bought hockey bags for drug trafficking.

“The accused knew it was cocaine,” he concluded, adding that Tonsiu was “an experienced person in drug trafficking.”

The magistrate therefore found him guilty of the offense of importing and possessing drugs.

Observations on the defendant’s sentence will be made later this month.

His accomplice Patrick Simeone was sentenced in July 2021 to 42 months in prison after pleading guilty.
