Santa's Helpers Busted For Drugs
How this for taking advantage of the holiday spirit?
The packages were labeled as toys for good girls and boys and the business was called Santa's Helpers. But authorities say the packages were nothing more than a naughty ruse to cover a large-scale drug smuggling operation.
The bogus business tried to smuggle $7.8 million worth of cocaine from Los Angeles to nearby Willoughby, Ohio authorities said. Drug agents seized about 175 pounds of cocaine Monday in the largest seizure in Cleveland this year.
