VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – A Peace Arch border guard who was arrested after two men were pulled over with more than 200 kilos of cocaine in their semi has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Baljinder Kandola admitted to taking about $10,000 dollars in bribes to let the people in the truck enter Canada without recording their information in his computer.
The judge didn’t buy his claim that he thought the people in the truck were smuggling car parts to avoid paying duty.

Kandola’s co-accused, Shminder Johal, got an 18-year sentence, 16 years for cocaine smuggling, and two years for smuggling guns into the province.

Kandola was arrested in 2007.
