Canadian Woman Found Guilty Of Drug Trafficking In Costa Rica

A Canadian woman who came to Costa Rica for a vacation will be spending now eight years as a guest of country's penitentiary system after being found guilty of international drug trafficking.

A Liberia, Guanacaste, court found the woman identified by her last name DePaulo, guilty of attempting to smuggle out some 1.385 grams of cocaine from the Daniel Oduber international airport.

According to the court, DePaulo appeared nervous while going through airport security, leading authorities to suspect the woman. During interrogation and search they learned of the illegal drugs hidden in two bottles carried in her suitcase.
