Master Sergeant Daniel J. Gould pleaded guilty to conspiracy to traffic cocaine in December after authorities found he tried to smuggle nearly 90 pounds of the drug from Colombia to US
A decorated military veteran has confessed to attempting to smuggle more than a million dollars worth of cocaine in the U.S.
Master Sergeant Daniel J. Gould was caught trying to bring in 88 pounds (40 kilograms) of cocaine from Colombia into via a military transport flight bound for Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.
But Gould’s plan was busted following a tip to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), according to ABC7.
According to federal documents, the DEA in Bogota, Colombia’s capital, found the shocking amount of cocaine stuffed inside punching bags.
A Special Forces soldier was suspicious of the the bags and intercepted them. Then Colombian officials X-rayed them and found its contents.
