January 13, 2011

Costa Rica’s court in Liberia, the capital of the northwestern province of Guanacaste, ordered the 34-year-old Canadian man whose last name is Hamilton to five months in preventative prison Thursday for international drug trafficking. He faces 20 years in Costa Rican prison if convicted, according to the the daily La Nacion.

Costa Rica’s Drug Control Police arrested Hamilton at the Liberia International Airport after they searched his luggage and found roughly 300 grams of cocaine stuffed inside cans of black beans.

Hamilton was expecting to board a flight to Vancouver, Canada.
