.The pair’s vehicle was searched by sniffer dogs when they arrived last week at the federal penitentiary about 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of Calgary, Alberta. The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) said in a statement it was “acting on intelligence information.”)

 

CSC spokeswoman Rita Wehrle told AFP drug traffickers sell to prisoners because they can obtain up to 10 times more for their wares than if they sold on the street.
