The most unlikely drug runners you’ve probably never heard of - Short Cut

The bullet point version of today's episode of Australian True Crime.


There’s stories that get under the skin of people, especially journalists. And this story you’re going to hear about is unbelievable. And most of us have probably never heard about it. Enter author Sandi Logan, a former journalist and diplomat who followed the case of two older American women Vera 'Toddie' Hays and Florice 'Beezie' Bessire - who were arrested in Australia in the 1970s for having almost 2 TONNES of hashish concealed in a camper van. He’s written a book called Betrayed: The incredible untold inside story of the two most unlikely drug-running grannies in Australian history that is the definitive story of this case.
