Two Canadian women accused of smuggling over $30 million (U.S$23 million) worth of cocaine into Sydney on a cruise ship documented their lavish holiday on social media before their arrest at the weekend.
Melina Roberge, 22, and Isabelle Lagacé, 28, were on the Sea Princess cruise, which started in Britain and visited Canada, USA, Colombia, Peru and Auckland all before arriving in Australia on Sunday.
The pair, along with co-accused Andre Tamine, 63, fronted a Sydney court on Monday after they were caught allegedly attempting to import 95kg (200lb) of cocaine into the country.
The trio are each charged with one count of ‘import commercial quantity of border controlled drug’.
