Two Canadians accept drug smuggling sentences

Two Canadians have accepted abbreviated judicial processes and have been sentenced each to five years and four months in prison.

Both had been arrested in separate incidents in March.

The Canadian who has the last name of Landry tried to leave the country with cocaine hidden in a surf board, police said at the time. The Poder Judicial said that the Policía de Control de Drogas made the arrest at Juan Santamaría airport.

The second man has the last name of McGlory. He, too, was detained at the international airport when police found 3.5 kilos of cocaine in the false bottom of a briefcase, they said at the time.

Both men were accused of international drug trafficking. Both were headed to Canada.
