I'm just happy he didn't try...

...to blame it on President Trump.

Leston Lawrence made $130,000 from the 17 pucks he sold, which he sent abroad to build a house in Jamaica and buy a boat in Florida, among other transactions.

Defence lawyer Gary Barnes, meanwhile, said his client should receive an 18-month jail sentence, arguing lax security measures made it easy for Lawrence to smuggle the gold.
I'm guessing somebody graduated with honours from the University of Eastern Iqaluit Law School...
"He's sitting there looking at what the judge has done ... and he accepts that he has been convicted."
Really Mr Barnes... he's not just gonna get up and leave the courtroom?

Seem to me that he smuggled "cookies" out of the mint, the authorities were puzzled as to how.
Some shap eyed detective noticed a jar of vaseline in his locker...........

I dunno, a good prosecuting attorney could make the case the guy expected to get caught and was preparing for a long jail term the way he was stretching his ring-piece out of shape stuffing all those gold bars in it.

here in canada you only do a fraction of your sentence, whether it's for shoplifting or murder. he spends a year max in club fed, then picks up his boat in florida and sails off to his new home in jamaica.

no pain (in the arse)... no gain. he beat us.
