One of the two Quebec women found with a massive amount of cocaine in her luggage after partying on a cruise ship for two months has pleaded guilty to importing a commercial quantity of cocaine into Australia.
Isabelle Lagace, 28, entered the guilty plea Friday, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. She will be sentenced in February and could face life in prison.
Lagace, Melina Roberts, 23, and 63-year-old Quebecer Andre Jorge Tamine were busted in Sydney, the final stop of luxury cruiseliner MS Sea Princess. Australian authorities reportedly said drug sniffing dogs helped them locate the 95-kilogram stash of cocaine, valued at more than £18 million.
Prior to being arrested, Lagace and Roberts documented themselves having a sick vacation aboard the £12,000-a-head cruise; Instragram photos show them ATVing in Peru, drinking out of coconuts in French Polynesia, and hanging out in Times Square.
Roberts is set to appear in court next week while Tamine's next court date is set for next year in the Australian province of New South Wales.
The drug bust is the largest Australia has seen via boat or plane.
