An unusual Canadian news story is getting plenty of attention from international press, and the headlines pretty much sum up the story.
From Russia Today: “Laying the Golden Eggs.”
From CNN: “Canadian Mint employee may have smuggled gold where the sun don’t shine.”
And, as German broadcaster Deutsche Welle delicately put it: “Canadian Mint employee accused of stealing gold hidden up his bum.”
Indeed, Barrhaven, Ont. resident Leston Lawrence, 38, is a hot topic at water coolers this week as he stands trial for allegedly stealing $180,000 of gold pucks from the Royal Canadian Mint and trading them for cash at an Ottawa mall.
