A man from Fort McMurray, accused in the largest ever narcotics seizure at the Coutts border crossing, will be going to trial next spring.

Back in March 2018, Canada Border Services Agency officers uncovered 31 bricks of suspected cocaine while searching a man’s vehicle at the international border crossing.

RCMP say the approximate street value of the 31kg of cocaine would have been between $1.4-million and $3.4-million.

28 year old Bradley Gaudrault is facing two charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

His two-week judge and jury trial in Lethbridge Court of Queen’s Bench is scheduled from March 15-26, 2021.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
