400 pounds seized in cocaine arrest
BELLINGHAM – Federal prosecutors have charged two Canadian nationals with drug possession after being arrested with about 400 pounds of cocaine.
Leah Norton and Curtis McLay were arrested Dec. 6 outside a Bellingham diner after federal agents tailed them from a known smuggling spot on the Canadian-U.S. border. They were in federal court in Seattle last week.
Agents found 184 bricks of cocaine that weighed about 2 pounds each.
