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.
