Swimming that good across the border?? That’s a new one…
SCUBA Diver Caught Trying To Smuggle 8 Pounds Of Kush Into Michigan From Canada
A scuba diver has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle eight pounds of Mary Jane from Canada into the U.S. by swimming underneath a busy shipping lane.
Border agents swooped at around 1am yesterday morning after the frogman surfaced near Marine City, Michigan, on the American side of the St.Clair River.
They later recovered a waterproof canister containing the drugs, which have a street value of around $40,000, tied to a seawall ladder.
The authorities swooped after St. Clair County dispatch received a tip-off that someone was swimming across the river south of Sarnia.
A camera operator at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township picked up the swimmer and noticed he appeared to be towing a ‘dry bag’.
Border patrol agents on the ground in Marine City, Michigan were quickly alerted and prepared a welcoming committee.
Authorities described the swim across a one kilometer wide section of the river which is a busy shipping channel as particularly foolhardy especially in the middle of the night.
Greg Grogan, a public affairs officer with U.S. Customs and Border Protection said: ‘If there’s a freighter coming through there, there’s no way for a freighter to stop. That’s a very, very dangerous thing to do.’
