The National Police arrested Kerman Todd, alias ‘Robinson’, in Santa Marta, a Canadian drug trafficker who was being sought by the authorities of his country.

Todd, 65 years old, led a discreet life in Colombia, where he dedicated himself to teaching English through a virtual platform.

Alias ​​’Robinson’ had a red Interpol notice against him and was detained on a street in Santa Marta by the authorities. According to the Police in a statement, Todd began his criminal activity at the age of 38.

In 1997, he was captured for the first time in his native country on charges related to drug trafficking. The following year, in 1998, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison for crimes linked to drug trafficking in Canada.
