COBURN GORE, Maine — A Canadian couple has pleaded guilty to drug charges after $70,000 worth of drugs were found in their car at a remote border crossing in western Maine.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says 40-year-old Jason White and 21-year-old Amber Baird of Stephensville, Newfoundland, were arrested at the border station in Coburn Gore on Monday. Police say they found 1½ pounds of cocaine and nearly 1,900 Ecstasy pills in the couple’s BMW.

Police say the pair came upon the border crossing while following directions on a GPS that showed going through Maine was the quickest route to Newfoundland.

Baird was sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $5,000 after pleading guilty Wednesday to drug trafficking. White was fined $500 and forfeited his car after pleading guilty to drug possession.
