Bronx druglords busted for stashing cocaine in Lego toys in Puerto Rico and mailing them to New York
Turns out Lego is for more than building castles these days.
Ringleader Jose David Diaz-Ortega, 28, and his eight cohorts used associates in Puerto Rico to ship the coke-laden toy kits to addresses in Manhattan and the Bronx, said the New York office of the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Federal agents said they investigated the ring for five months, tracking the packages as they arrived via the U.S. Postal Service and as money was wired back to Puerto Rico.
