John Stirling, Captain Caught With 800 Lbs Of Coke, Took Photos Atop Giant Piles of Cash
Sure, John Philip Stirling may be Canadian, but he's also the most Miami-flavored drug smuggler to land in local federal court since the heyday of the Cocaine Cowboys.

Let's just say it now. Riptide would never approve of massive cocaine trafficking operations, but dammit, we like the cut of this fella's jib.
