An employee at the Royal Canadian Mint is accused of smuggling $180K worth of gold in his rectum. Lester Lawrence is accused of transporting several cookie-sized gold pieces called “pucks” out of the Mint and selling them to a gold buyer.
His dealings allegedly netted him almost $180K over the course of a few months. Although the prosecution couldn’t definitively identify the pucks Lawrence sold, they did say they matched an exclusive mold the Mint uses. Investigators say that he used Vaseline that they found in his work locker.
