So, in case you and I went to the Haskell Free Library and Opera Home, half of which is in Derby Line, Vermont, and the opposite half of which is in Stanstead, QuÃ©bec, we might consider it as a intelligent gimmick designed to draw vacationers to boring little cities with little else to supply. However, have been you and I genius criminals, we might see it as a venue for the proper crime.
Right here’s why. When you’re from Canada, you park in Canada, and you’ll stroll to the one entrance on the U.S. facet with out clearing Canadian or U.S customs. And it’s the identical factor on the way in which out in case you go straight again to your automotive within the parking zone in Canada. So,Â this good prison gangÂ cooked up the plan to purchase weapons in america after which depart them in a backpack within the library’s toilet. ThenÂ the Canadian gang member would later retrieve the weapons and take them again to Canada with out ever having to fret about U.S. or Canadian Customs. Good! Foolproof! Genius!
After all, by no means underestimate cops in humorous hats and purple coats who experience round on horses. They’re a lot smarter than they seem. A joint operation nabbed the Canadian charged with retrieving the gun-filled backpack from the library’s males’s room. That Canadian, Alex Vlachos, was simply sentenced to 51 months in U.S. jail for his position within the transnational library smuggling scheme. He shall be given credit score for the 43 months he spent in U.S. jail after being extradited to america. Do you suppose he spent a lot time within the jail library?
