Kedgwick Pair Get 14 Years For Trying To Import/Export Drugs

A man and a woman from Kedgwick are looking at over 14 years in jail combined after pleading guilty to charges of  gangsterism and drug conspiracy.

Back in March, 53 year old Sylvain Borris was found guilty of three charges in a Montreal courtroom including trying to export marijuana and conspiracy to import 300 kilos of cocaine.     He got a 10 and a half years sentence and a $250,000 fine.

43 year old Lucie Lagace was found guilty on a conspiracy to import cocaine and of gangsterism and for that gets sentenced to four years in prison.

The pair were arrested last summer in a multi-agency investigation that found a group trying to smuggle drugs into the U.S. between Maine, New Brunswick and Quebec.

This group had connections with people in Colombia and conspired to import coke into this country.
