MELINA Roberge’s Instagram account reads simply: “Currently travelling”. But that’s not entirely really the truth.

The 22-year-old Canadian spent almost two months in paradise throughout July and August. On her social media accounts, she shared pictures drinking from coconuts and posing in front of turquoise waters in her bikini.

With 95 kilograms of cocaine stuffed into their suitcases, these three Canadian nationals did not have much room for clean underwear or spare toothbrushes. Following an international joint operation targeting drug smuggling syndicates, our detector dogs boarded a cruise ship in Sydney and sniffed out the narcotics. The huge haul represents a record for drugs seized off a cruise vessel coming into Australia.

Cops sent sniffer dogs onto the MS Sea Princess, a massive cruise ship which carries 2,000 people on round-the-world trips from the UK to Australia.
