SPOKANE, Wash. — Washington state police say a Canadian man accused of smuggling marijuana by helicopter has hanged himself in the Spokane County Jail.
Samuel Lindsay-Brown, from Revelstoke, B.C., was alone in the cell where he was found Friday hanging by a bedsheet from a light fixture.
Police are investigating the death.
The 24-year-old had been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
He was arrested Feb. 23 unloading more than 150 kilograms of BC bud from a helicopter in a remote spot in the Colville National Forest.
The delivery had been arranged by undercover Drug Enforcement Administration agents.
