Bags of booze seized in smuggling busts

Bags of contraband alcohol from St. Pierre-Miquelon were seized in two smuggling investigations on Newfoundland's Burin Peninsula. Police found 725, 60-ounce bottles of alcohol.
Smuggling has a long and proud tradition in the waters around St-Pierre-Miquelon — from tales of Al Capone and his gangsters, to out-of-work Newfoundlanders capitalizing on a black market for cheap booze.St Pierre and Miquelon celebrated 200 years of being French in 2016.
