These guys were SO creative about their drug ring they even had a name for it!
They called it the Main Line Take-Over Project, and their plans worked… for a while. The law eventually caught up with them, as it always does — and that's great news, because they targeted schools and teens.
25-year-old Neil Scott and 18-year-old Timothy Brooks were in the business of supplying drugs - mainly marijuana - to almost all of the public and private schools on the Main Line which describes a region of Philadelphia suburban towns in Pennsylvania.
Apparently Mr. Scott was shipping large amounts of marijuana from California to Mr. Brooks who would then break off a piece to at least six sub-dealers who then sold it to private schools such as Haverford School to public schools such as Lower Merion, Harriton, Conestoga, Radnor, and even to colleges such as Gettysburg, Haverford and Lafayette College.
Haverford School was where both the arrested suspects graduated from.
The police's investigation lead to a seizure of the boys' main supply room where they found A LOT of marijuana and also hash oil, cocaine, ecstasy, guns and lots of cash.
Here's what Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman said in a statement:
"They tried to infiltrate our schools, not for educational purposes, but to make money and to drag others into the downward spiral that their lives had become…This was not a game. These people were in business. They were in business to make money and they were going to do whatever they needed to do to make sure no one threatened their business."
One of the texts that Brooks wrote to Scott read:
"Every nug [bud of marijuana] on the Main Line is about to come from you and me."
We guess they were a little TOO successful in their plans!
We're definitely curious to see what kind of jail time these drug "masterminds" will receive since we're guessing their parents will be absolutely shelling out the dough for some high priced lawyers.
It's like that movie The Social Network except the preppy nerds are drug dealers instead.
As if the world needed further proof that crime does not pay!
