Two tobacco smugglers escaped by boat but an alleged accomplice was apprehended during an early morning arrest January 8 near Glen Walter.
Two suspects were seen making landfall by members of the RCMP Cornwall Detachment's Border Integrity Team. Several black garbage bags containing about 620 kilograms of tobacco were unloaded from the boat into a pickup truck. Police arrested the truck driver but the two other suspects fled in the boat.
Linda Albers, 49, of Cornwall is to appear March 4 in court to face a charge of possession of unstamped tobacco.
