TORONTO - Former Montreal stripper Aida Fagundo was accused of being the No. 2 cocaine dealer in her city, transporting $100 million worth of coke to Toronto, a jury heard Thursday.

Fagundo was testifying at the trial of five ex-Central Field Command drug squad officers, whom she alleged assaulted her, stole her $20,000 diamond stud ear-rings and $10,000 in cash, and intimidated her to admit the five kilograms of cocaine belonged to her.

In a spirited cross-examination, defence lawyer Harry Black labelled Fagundo as “the Queen, No. 1 drug dealer in Montreal” behind only her former lover Daniel Muir, who was assassinated on Feb. 3, 2004.

“No, oh my goodness, if I’d have been a princess (of drug dealing) I’d have millions and millions of dollars and I wouldn’t have a mortgage,” the 48-year-old woman snorted derisively as she testified via video link from Spain.

“You put $100 million worth of cocaine on to the streets of Toronto (over 10 years), into the high schools and into the stairwells of apartment buildings where young men get shot over cocaine. That’s what you did, isn’t it,” suggested Black, who represents Steven Correia.

Edinburg Police arrested a second person in connection to an undercover sting at a strip club. Crystal Salas from Sullivan City is behind bars. Police accused her accused of selling cocaine to two undercover cops back in December. Watch the news report here

The UK's only drug treatment centre for mothers involved in sex work and their children is to close next month due to a lack of funding.

Two-thirds of women treated at the centre have overcome their drug problems and have kept their children in their care while the drug treatment outcomes are more than double the national average.
