Prosecutors say a major drug trafficker pleaded guilty Wednesday to smuggling cocaine
Prosecutors say a major drug trafficker pleaded guilty Wednesday to smuggling cocaine from the U.S. to Canada through Derby Line. Guillaume (GI- OHM) Laitre, 26, is an executive at a commercial trucking company in Quebec. Through the business, authorities say he trafficked cocaine in a tractor-trailer beginning in 2019. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers inspected the trailer and found more than 300 pounds of cocaine. He faces up to life in prison, and a possible $10 million fine. He is scheduled to be sentenced October 12.
