Philly Now A Little Safer

From the Philadelphia Daily News -- and note, this is even more evidence of the global organized crime behind designer drugs:

DEA agents arrest six on drug-smuggling charges
November 11, 2004 : Federal authorities believe they have broken up a local drug network that they say was smuggling large quantities of ecstasy and marijuana from Canada into Philadelphia.

On Sunday, DEA agents arrested six reputed ring members and seized a shipment of some 55,000 ecstasy pills worth about $1 million on the black market. The defendants, including several from Vietnam and two from South America, all Philadelphia-area residents, are to have bail hearings tomorrow in federal court in Philadelphia.
