LETHBRIDGE, AB – A jury finding a Fort McMurray man guilty on Tuesday (Mar. 23) of trying to smuggle 31kg of cocaine across the Carway international border three years ago.

Back in March 2018, Canada Border Services Agency officers stopped Bradley Gaudrault, 28, at the border crossing, located south of Cardston, and searched the vehicle he was driving. They uncovered 31 bricks of cocaine in a hidden compartment, valued between $1.4-million and $3.4-million.

It’s believed to be the largest-ever narcotics seizure at Carway.

Gaudrault had been on trial for the last week in Lethbridge Court of Queen’s Bench. It came to an end on Tuesday (Mar. 23) when jurors found him guilty of two charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Gaudrault’s case has now been moved to Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench for a sentencing hearing on May 13.

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!
