Glen Richard Mousseau is now facing three potential charges from the Department of Homeland Security.
A Canadian drug smuggler nearly pulled a dramatic escape before he washed up in the Detroit River last week.
Glen Richard Mousseau is now facing three potential charges from the Department of Homeland Security, according to a report published by Click On Detroit, after being found unconscious in the water on Friday by border patrol agents. The weeks leading up to that scene were just as strange and surreal.
Caught, Escaped, Caught Again
Click On Detroit reported that Mousseau was pulled over driving a U-Haul truck on May 10 in Michigan, where authorities then found a package containing more than $97,000 in the trunk. Mousseau was taken into custody but said he did not know who the package belonged to. The publication said that he told authorities that “he directs a smuggling organization that moves money and drugs between Canada and the U.S.,” by giving “GPS coordinates to someone in Canada, and that person crosses the river in a submarine.”
“Mousseau would then send the drugs or money and his associate back across the river, court records show,” according to Click on Detroit. “Mousseau said he’s the owner of a submarine that was seized by Border Patrol agents April 23 from the Zug Island shoreline.”
