Police In Canada Have Actually Arrested A Man For Hiding Cocaine In Tim Hortons Timbits

Canada has a love-hate relationship with Tim Hortons.

Sure, we sometimes love to complain, but we all know that the coffee and fast food chain is an iconic Canadian institution.

TL;DR The RCMP in Fort Good Hope, NWT has arrested a man who attempted to smuggle cocaine in Tim Hortons Timbits.

Its brand is basically synonymous with that of Canada. Just think about some of Timmies' most creative products and promotions: Canada-themed donuts, Christmas tree-shaped treats, smile cookies, and, of course, the "roll-up-the-rim" event.

These food items and events yield equally creative applications. Tim Hortons food is definitely the perfect accessory for an Instagram photo, for example.

But this week, one man took such creativity to an extreme.

In a press release, the Fort Good Hope RCMP in the Northwest Territories details the arrest of a man who attempted to smuggle cocaine in perhaps Tim Hortons' most famous product, Timbits.


"On Tuesday, November 13th, the RCMP in Fort Good Hope initiated an investigation after receiving information that a person was possibly shipping a controlled substance into the community via a flight to Fort Good Hope from Yellowknife," the release explains.

The release also suggests that this one attempt could have been part of a larger operation. It's unlikely (hopefully) that an entire drug-smuggling ring makes use of Tim Hortons products to carry out their endeavours.

This is a uniquely Canadian crime.

The RCMP is asking asking anyone with information regarding this investigation to please call 867-598-1111, contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477, (click on "submit a web tip") or text: nwtnutips to 274637.
