Bikini-Posing Canadian Twentysomethings Caught Smuggling $30 Million of Cocaine

Their photos looked like the type that any of us would take on an epic, Instagram-worthy vacation.

Isabelle Lagacé, 28, and Melina Roberge, 22, of Quebec filled their Instagram accounts with glossy snaps of them on a luxury trip that would make anyone jealous.

While they filled their social media accounts with sun-kissed shots, they also filled their suitcases with a shit-ton of cocaine.

The trip ended badly for the pair when they, along with André Tamine, 63, were charged with importing a commercial quantity of cocaine.

On Sunday, 95 kilograms (200 lbs) of cocaine were seized by the Australian Federal Police on a cruise ship docked in Sydney.

It’s a pretty massive deal.

Worth $30 million, it’s the largest ever seizure of narcotics carried by passengers of a cruise ship or airliner in Australia.

Australian authorities worked with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the New Zealand Customs Service, and the Canada Border Services Agency in the operation to identify the three Canadians charged as “high-risk passengers.”

“These syndicates should be on notice that the Australian Border Force is aware of all of the different ways they attempt to smuggle drugs into our country and we are working with a range of international agencies to stop them,” Australian Border Force Assistant Commissioner, Clive Murray, said in a statement.

The trio were on the MS Sea Princess cruise.

The ship began its journey from England and made stops in North America, the Caribbean, and South America.

Their Instagram accounts show smiling shots of the bikini-clad Lagacé and Roberge frolicking on beaches, posing with coconuts, riding ATVs, and standing in front of scenic backdrops.

It’s a good thing they enjoyed it, because it will probably be the last trip they ever take. The maximum penalty is life imprisonment.

The trio will remain in custody until their next court appearance on October 26.
