CTV is reporting that "New details are emerging after a 51-year-old Alberta man was arrested aboard a speedboat that U.S. authorities say was carrying 650 kilograms of methamphetamine between Washington state and British Columbia."
This has Western Wind written all over it. Who do you think those drugs were for? Do you think they will be charged? Not a chance. Gang enforcement in BC is corrupt.
The Peninsula News Review is reporting that "The boat pilot – a Canadian – was arrested on a count of drug distribution.
Alberta resident Ted Karl Faupel appeared in U.S. District Court in Seattle on Thursday."
"According to a federal criminal complaint filed in the U.S. court, Faupel told investigators that he had been hiking near a marina in Sidney, on Vancouver Island, when someone approached him and offered him $1,000 to move a boat from Anacortes, Washington, and back."
"According to the complaint, he said he left from Vancouver Island on Tuesday. He said four men met him at a Washington State Parks boat dock, took the boat on a trailer and dropped him off at an inn. The next day, they brought him back to the dock and he left in the newly loaded boat to return to Canada. He said he did not know what was in the duffel bags, the complaint said."
What men? You don't bring someone elses boat across the border without asking what's in the duffle bags. It's a huge seizure but once again the crime group that brought it in won't be charged.
Update: He has Hells Angels support gear posted all over his Facebook.
