Ecstasy smuggler taped tabs under pants: Customs
U.S. border authorities say a Michigan man driving into the United States from Windsor, Ont., was caught trying to smuggle thousands of ecstasy tablets under his pants.
A customs agent says Nimat David had approximately 9,000 tablets duct-taped to his calves and thighs Saturday night when he crossed the Ambassador Bridge into Detroit from Windsor.
In a court filing, agent Mark O'Hare says Nimat said two men at a Windsor casino offered him $1,000 to transport the drugs.
Nimat told agents, "I will give you everybody," a reference to any accomplices in Windsor.
He was in custody Monday with no indication that a defence lawyer had been assigned.
