    Smugglers Hide Cocaine Inside Virgin Mary Tombstones

    reminds me of the heroin in the virgin mary statues on--"LOST"...


    WASHINGTON (March 31) - Federal agents on Thursday said they had broken up a ring of drug smugglers who used tombstones featuring the Virgin Mary to move hundreds of pounds of cocaine into the United States from Mexico.


    The Drug Enforcement Agency announced arrests of 12 people as part of an alleged conspiracy stretching from New York to Mexico City.

    Four of those arrests came Thursday, one in Houston and three after an early morning raid on a warehouse in New York's Brooklyn borough.

    At the warehouse, agents found bricks of cocaine packed inside tombstones, some decorated with figures of the Virgin Mary, the DEA said.

    "Like grave robbers who have no respect for the dead, this drug organization used revered tombstones to smuggle millions of dollars worth of cocaine into New York City," said John Gilbride, the special agent in charge of the New York DEA office.

    At the Brooklyn warehouse, agents found eight tombstones, five of which were packed with 20 to 25 kilograms each of cocaine. They also found remnants of smashed tombstones.

    An earlier seizure at a Long Island stash house netted 84 kilograms of cocaine and nearly $500,000 in drug proceeds, officials said.

    This ice chest had more than $55,000 hidden in its walls.

    Agreed.

    Every time I go by my Dad's I see a lot of activity next door. A lot of traffic. I pretty much mind my own biz but can't help but notice the activity.

    There's a lot of mexican mafia out here now. The town's changed quite a bit since I last lived out here (20+ years ago).
