Suspects Face Ten Years for Cocaine Smuggling


Two Canadian men are facing at least ten years in prison for trying to sneak nearly 300 pounds of cocaine through Athens County. 

Federal prosecutors say Sylvain Desjardins and David Ayotte have agreed to plead guilty to Possession with Intent to Distribute charges.  

The pair had the drugs stashed on their plane when they had to make an emergency landing in March at Ohio University Airport.
