One man tried to put a seasonal twist on drug smuggling. Cedrik Bourgault-Morin (bohr-GOH’ moh-RAN’) was caught trying to pull 180 pounds of prescription pills across the border from Canada into Vermont on a sled.
He made a valid attempt to go undetected, sporting white camouflage, but authorities were alerted when he set off a sensor. Border agents found 300 vacuum-sealed bags of Xanax pills in a duffel bag on the sled, which has a street value of about $1.6-million.
