Get it?? Because people on Wall Street LOVE cocaine! LOLz!
We kid (not really), but it IS true that cops in NYC have just nabbed $5m in cocaine from a hotel in Times Square. If you're doing the drug math, that's over 100 pounds of the white powder meant for faceboarding down Mt. Blow.
The drugs were found in three rolling suitcases that were wheeled out of the Crowne Plaza Hotel like tourist luggage — with cops jumping out of hiding to bust the six accused coke traffickers! It's like a movie, except kinda boring: everyone was arrested without incident, without much chase.
One dude DID get away, getting lost in a crowd of tourists. Even that wasn't very exciting though.
All of the defendants have plead not guilty, though, somehow.
Doesn't make much sense to us — seems like a really clean bust. Hope you guys like jail! Ha!
