Women charged over $30 million drug smuggle; Instagrammed whole trip
It was an Instagram-worthy trip that has ended badly for three Canadians in Australia.
André Tamine, 63, Isabelle Lagacé, 28, and Melina Roberge, 22, all from Quebec, have been charged with importing a commercial quantity of cocaine, according to the Associated Press.
95 kilograms (200 lbs) were seized by the Australian Federal Police on a cruise ship docked in Sydney on Sunday. Worth A$31 million ($23 million), it’s the largest ever seizure of narcotics carried by passengers of a cruise ship or airliner in the country.
