Woman nabbed with cocaine in DVD player
A woman about to board a Regina-bound flight at Vancouver International Airport last week was found to be carrying 0.5 kilograms of cocaine worth nearly $20,000.
On Friday, Aug. 30, the woman was checking in for a flight to Saskatchewan, when her behaviour prompted the RCMP's airport crime unit to investigate.
A search of her suitcase revealed half a kilogram of cocaine concealed inside a DVD player.
The woman was arrested and is scheduled to appear in Richmond provincial court on Oct. 3.
Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said the cocaine's street value was between $16,000 and $20,000.
