RCMP Arrest Man for Conspiracy to Import Heroin at Toronto International Airport



    TORONTO, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
General Investigation Impact Team have charged a Montreal man with conspiring
to import heroin into Canada. Jimmy MIUDO, who is already before the courts on
unrelated drug charges, is alleged to be part of a criminal organization
responsible for importing heroin into Canada through the Toronto Pearson
International Airport.
    In February 2008, a 24 year old woman was arrested at Pearson Airport for
importing over 1,600 grams of heroin. Upon further investigation, it was
revealed that the woman had been recruited as a drug courier by MIUDO.
Investigators allege MIUDO made the courier's travel arrangements, provided
expense money and offered her a cash award for incurring such a significant
risk.
    "This is yet another case of criminals exploiting young people to further
their criminal enterprises. As is the case with many of the couriers we deal
with at the airport, the risks they take only become clear to them upon
arrest," stated Inspector Dean Dickson , Officer in Charge of the RCMP Toronto
Airport Detachment.
    Jimmy MIUDO, age 33, of Montreal, Quebec is charged with conspiracy to
import heroin into Canada. He was held in custody and will appear at the
Brampton Court tomorrow.
