Man sentenced in attempted smuggling

Posted: Monday, August 09, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Federal prosecutors say a 67-year-old man who tried to smuggle methamphetamine into Alaska by strapping it to his legs has been sentenced to 16 years in prison.

William G. Pariseau of Talkeetna was convicted in a May trial of attempted possession with the intent to distribute.

According to prosecutors, Pariseau was flying to Anchorage from Tucson, Ariz., in October 2008 when authorities noticed he was walking strangely during a layover in Seattle.

Prosecutors say Pariseau also had unnatural bulges in his pant legs.

A search found the meth strapped with elastic bandages to his legs.
