A Brampton truck driver has been found not guilty of smuggling $7 million worth of cocaine from Detroit to Windsor three years ago.
Karamjit Singh Grewal, 49, was acquitted from possession for the purpose of trafficking and importing almost 70 kilograms of cocaine, which Canadian border officials found in his 18-wheeler truck.
The bricks of cocaine were discovered inside two banker’s boxes and two pails hidden among the lettuce Grewal was transporting to Cambridge.
According to The Windsor Star, Superior Court Justice Mary Jo Nolan said she didn’t believe all of Grewal’s testimony but there was reasonable doubt as there’s no forensic evidence linking Grewal to the crime.
Defence lawyer Pat Ducharme said his client will attempt to resume working as a truck driver and reclaim his truck and citizenship papers, which were seized in 2009.
