A Canadian man who allegedly attempted to smuggle a quantity of cocaine valued at $6.6 million is to appear before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish court on Wednesday. 

Fifty-eight-year-old truck driver, Collin Campbell, otherwise called ‘Fudge’ of Toronto, Canada, has been charged with possession of cocaine, dealing in cocaine, attempting to export cocaine and conspiracy. 

The Canadian was arrested last Wednesday at the Norman Manley International Airport while waiting for a flight to his homeland.

The police reported that a police dog alerted its handler to Campbell’s luggage and subsequent checks revealed 14 parcels of cocaine concealed in his suitcase.

The drugs were allegedly found hidden in crab meat and fried fish.
