Border Agents Unwrap the Kim Sardines


Two men have been charged with smuggling 13 Korean women over the Canadian border into Idaho, perhaps with the intent of selling the women into prostitution in California. Sang Yoon Kim of British Columbia and the unfortunately named Bum Suk Kim of Korea had packed the women into an RV, but border agents received a tip notifying them of the smuggling. According to the Spokesman Review in Spokane, the agents noticed steamy windows when they approached the vehicle, and found the women lying on the floor and on the RV's various beds. The Kim boys could face 10 years in prison apiece if convicted, and the women are being held as material witnesses before being deported back to Korea.
