Canada man ordered to face drug charges in US

Posted:
A Canadian man who American authorities allege is the kingpin of a cross-border drug-smuggling ring has been ordered extradited to the United States to face conspiracy charges.
   A B.C. Supreme Court judge ordered Colin Martin extradited to Seattle, where prosecutors have charged him with conspiracy to traffic in marijuana, cocaine and MDMA, also known as ecstasy.
   Martin was taken into custody following Justice William Ehrcke's decision, but he is eligible to apply for bail.
   U.S. prosecutors allege Martin was involved in large-scale drug-trafficking that saw marijuana and ecstasy shipped by helicopter to remote locations in northern Idaho and Washington state in exchange for cocaine, money and firearms.
