'Nanny' from Vancouver on trial for heroin smuggling

Serena Khavita Narinesingh, 28, left Rwanda on a flight on July 16, 2015 and arrived at Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Dorval the following day. ‎Her itinerary included layovers in Zurich and Brussels and when she arrived at Dorval she was unable to retrieve her two suitcases. She stayed at a Best Western Hotel while waiting for her suitcases to be located.

While there, something about her suitcases attracted the attention of Canada Border Service Agency and an officer decided to search them thoroughly.
It turned out both suitcases had ‎false bottoms, and when they were taken apart the CBSA and RCMP found 7.7 kilograms of heroin that was 39 per cent pure.
