Man gets prison time for trying to bring cocaine through southern Alberta crossing

LETHBRIDGE, AB – A Fort McMurray man is in jail for the next 6.5 years for attempting to smuggle 31 bricks of cocaine across the Canada/United States border.

Three years ago, now-29-year old Bradley Gaudrault was stopped at the Carway border crossing  where 31 kg of cocaine were uncovered in the vehicle he was driving.

At the time, it was considered to be the largest-ever narcotics seizure at that crossing.

A jury in Lethbridge Court of Queen’s Bench found him guilty back in March of importing a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Last week, Gaudrault was sentenced to a total of seven years behind bars, but he was given credit for just less than six months that he already served before his trial.

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!
