Man smuggles $180K of gold in rectum

A Royal Canadian Mint employee reportedly smuggled $180K (£100,000) worth of gold in his rectum.

Investigators said on Tuesday (20.09.16), 35-year-old Leston Lawrence has been accused of thwarting the company's high security.

The Ottawa Citizen reports that Lawrence faced "a number of smuggling-for-cash charges, including theft, laundering the proceeds of crime, possession of stolen property and breach of trust."

A decision will be reached by Ontario Court of Justice Judge Peter Doody on November 9.
