Woman with pumpkins stuffed with cocaine at Canada Airport

A woman originally from the Dominican Republic, who holds passports from both that country and Canada, was held recently after an x-ray of three pumpkins she was traveling with on a flight to Canada revealed that the Halloween staples were packed with bags of cocaine.

Suspicion arose when a Border Service Agent at Canada Airport asked 26 years old Mercedes Jerez Farias, who was not able to lift her own luggage due to the weight added to by the 4.7 kilos of smuggled cocaine, questions she was unable to adequately answer.

Report Attacks Haiti's Ineffective Drug-Trafficking Enforcement

The international community (IC), especially the U.S., has growing concerns about Haiti's leniency when it comes to clamping down on international drug trafficking. The country is a port-of-call for cocaine entering its southern border from South America, and marijuana from Jamaica.

Too few check points and spotty air surveillance on Haiti's northern and southern shores is the primary cause. The laxity of enforcement permits shipments of drugs into the country from the southern end, and their movement out of the country in the north.
