BELLINGHAM: Couple arrested with cocaine

Federal prosecutors have charged two Canadian nationals with drug possession after being arrested with about 400 pounds of cocaine.

The Bellingham Herald reported that Leah Norton and Curtis McLay were arrested Dec. 6 outside a Bellingham diner after federal agents tailed them from a known smuggling spot on the Canadian-U.S. border.

The couple was charged in federal court in Seattle this past week.

Agents found 184 bricks of cocaine that weighed about 2 pounds each.
