Smuggling drugs to U.S. nets 4 years

WASHINGTON STATE - An Abbotsford commercial trucker was sentenced Thursday to four years in an American jail for entering Washington state January with 290,000 ecstasy pills and 200 kilograms of ephredrine, used to make crystal meth.

Sarbjit Singh Bassi, 33, pleaded guilty last April to possession of ecstasy with the intent to distribute.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Zilly said the lengthy sentence would place a burden on Bassi's family but was necessary to send a strong message to other potential participants in the transporting of illegal drugs into the U.S.

Bassi attempted to cross into the U.S. at Blaine last Jan. 15 with a load of ecstasy and ephedrine concealed in the tractor-trailer he was driving.

Does anyoe other than kim bolan ever cover a story at the vancouver sun which involves sikhs???????? I think its dangerous to always have 1 person commenting on a community, especially when that journalist has demonstarted ignorance and bias in the past.

p.s. i am not trying to justify drug smuggling!
