Velasquez-Hernandez,tried to smuggle in a suitcase through Baltimore-Washington international airport

Authorities seized more than 14 pounds of cocaine worth $650,000 that had been stuffed inside dried soup packets, which a Salvadoran man tried to smuggle in a suitcase through Baltimore-Washington international airport, U.S. customs officials said.Jon Marsicano Jr., an agent with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in a sworn statement that Felix Velasquez-Hernandez was caught with the drug-filled soup packages when he tried to leave Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport on Jan. 31.Marsicano is assigned to an anti-smuggling detail at BWI. He wrote in the statement he was responding to a tip about cocaine smuggling from El Salvador. Another agency, a drug-sniffing dog and its handler joined him to search the luggage of passengers arriving on a flight from Houston.The team approached Velasquez-Hernandez, who had a valid U.S. visa and was supposed to return to El Salvador, when he would be paid $400, he later told Marsicano.When Velasquez-Hernandez agreed to have his luggage searched, the team found six boxes of soup in one of his bags, Marsicano wrote. Each soup box contained 11 packets of soup mix, but only six packets held dried soup.When the team tore open a packet and found cocaine, Velasquez-Hernandez began crying, Marsicano wrote.The other 60 packets held 14 1/2 pounds of cocaine.Velasquez-Hernandez told Marsicano he didn't know cocaine was in the luggage. He said a woman Velasquez-Hernandez knew in Sonsonate, El Salvador, had asked him to fly to the United States with the luggage.Velasquez-Hernandez was instructed to take the luggage to a Hyattsville man and stay with him until his return flight.Velasquez-Hernandez is being held without bail. No lawyer is listed for him."Cocaine is not grown in Maryland, it's coming through in planes, trains, automobiles and ships," said U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein.Rosenstein said hiding the cocaine in soup packets was unusual, adding, "one of the challenges to law enforcement is that traffickers use every conceivable means."

Arthur Michael Kinsella sentenced on Wednesday to a year in prison for failing to appear for his arraignment in August 2005.

Arthur Michael Kinsella, 48, of St. John, New Brunswick, was convicted in August after a four day jury trial of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone between January 2003 and December 2004 and of possession with the intent to distribute oxycodone in March 2005.
A different jury found him guilty in April 2008 of failing to appear in court 2½ years earlier.In addition to the sentence on the drug charges, U.S. District Judge John Woodcock sentenced Kinsella on Wednesday to a year in prison for failing to appear for his arraignment in August 2005. The two sentences are to be served consecutively.Kinsella faced up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.Assistant U.S. Attorney John “Jack” Nichols recommended that Woodcock sentence Kinsella to between 10 and 12½ years in prison due to the number of drugs he sold in Bangor. Virginia Villa, the federal public defender who represented Kinsella, urged the judge to use a more conservative calculation in deciding how many pills her client distributed and sentence him to between 6½ and eight years in prison.Kinsella was arrested in Brewer in March 2005 with a prescription bottle with his name on it that contained 90 oxycodone pills. The bottle was found in his mother’s purse. He was released on bail on April 1, 2005, and indicted by a federal grand jury 12 days later.When he did not show up for his arraignment five months later, a warrant was issued for his arrest. Kinsella was arrested and extradited from Canada in September 2007. He has been held without bail since then.
Kinsella’s mother told police at the time of her son’s arrest that he had picked her up and they were going to Bangor International Airport to pick up her daughter. She said her son had asked her to put the pills in her purse and did not declare them when they crossed the border at the Milltown bridge crossing in Calais.
Federal prosecutors learned of Kinsella’s alleged drug activities in December 2004 from a defendant who then was awaiting sentencing on federal drug charges, according to court documents. He told prosecutors that he obtained an average of 150 oxycodone pills a month from Kinsella and distributed them in the Bangor area

Brett Raymond Stevens, 44, was yesterday granted bail after appearing in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on six charges, including drug trafficking.He was arrested on Tuesday as part of a wider police investigation in which high-performance street vehicles worth millions of dollars were seized at Yatala and 15 search warrants served across the Gold and Sunshine coasts, Brisbane and in NSW.Others arrested have yet to face court.Mr Stevens, known as 'The Boss', is also charged with producing ecstasy at his Narangba home north of Brisbane between August, 2007, and the day of his arrest.He also faces a charge of producing cannabis there between August and November, 2008, and supplying ecstasy to a person at Coomera in July last year.He is charged with possessing a further $99,700 suspected of being used in connection with drugs in December last year.Police opposed bail yesterday, tendering a lengthy document outlining allegations accumulated during the year-long operation by Queensland Police, Australian Crime Commission and Crime and Misconduct Commission.The court was told it included references to the money allegedly being used to pay off tax and drug debts.Defence solicitor Andrew Bale said Mr Stevens was unable to mount a surety for bail because authorities had recently secured a court order freezing his assets, including money from his race car fabrication businesses.Magistrate Sheryl Cornack noted Mr Stevens had known he was under surveillance for some time and had made no moves to flee the jurisdiction or interfere with witnesses.She also noted Mr Stevens' trademark hairdo as he entered the dock, asking: 'Did he do that voluntarily to his own hair?'Bail was granted on conditions Mr Stevens live at his Narangba home, report twice a week to police and not contact a list of people alleged to be co-accused or witnesses in the case.
The Australian Drag Racing Association yesterday released a statement saying the sport had worked hard to promote a family-friendly activity and it had drug testing for competitors at all levels.At his final race meeting at Willowbank last December, Mr Stevens was presented with a plaque in recognition of his 18 years in the sport.Raceway managing director Steve Betts said Mr Stevens had been a willing volunteer in the promotion of Willowbank and the sport before his retirement.Yatala-based drag racing legend Victor Bray said the community was dismayed by the allegations.Mr Bray said a lot of effort had gone into the image of drag racing.
"It's a very, very family-oriented sport," he said."We have a lot of fans in the younger generation and there's no longer any alcohol at the track."Mr Stevens is due to reappear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on March 30 for a committal mention.

Zafar Iqbal,jailed for six years for the drugs conspiracy and two years on top for handling stolen goods.


Zafar Iqbal, 32, was at the West Yorkshire end of a conspiracy to peddle misery, the Honorary Recorder of Bradford, Judge Stephen Gullick, said today. Iqbal, a gambling addict who the judge said “lived way beyond his means”, was caught guarding almost £10,000 in a shoebox in his attic. Iqbal, of Clipstone Street, West Bowling, Bradford, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and conspiracy to handle stolen goods. He was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court today after a trial of issue to determine the extent of his involvement in the plot. Prosecutor Timothy Capstick said Iqbal worked closely with drugs courier Chukwuma Chikwelu, who was ferrying cocaine to Bradford from the capital. Chikwelu, 33, an illegal immigrant was arrested at Leeds Railway Station in September 2007. He had £40,000 of cocaine on him on what was his sixth trip to transport drugs to Bradford. Chikwelu pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and was jailed for six years at Bradford Crown Court in January last year. Iqbal, who was arrested in October, 2007, made no comment to the police. The court heard he was a gambling addict who lost £15,000 at Bradford’s Gala Casino. He was charged with conspiracy to handle stolen goods after police caught him storing £10,000 of stolen television sets and paintings. Iqbal’s barrister Tim Stead said his client had a wife and three children and wished to earn his living honestly. Judge Gullick told Iqbal: “This was not some tinpot operation but a serious drugs conspiracy, involving others, intent on peddling Class A drugs on the streets of Bradford.” He West Bowling dealer thought he was 'untouchable' Zafar Iqbal, a drug dealer who believed he was ‘untouchable’, was arrested as part of Operation Garvagh, an investigation into organised crime in Bradford. He went on the run after Nigerian illegal immigrant drugs courier Chukwuma Chikwelu was arrested, on his way to Bradford with a kilo of cocaine in his possession. But police tracked Iqbal to a hotel in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. The married father-of-three was found with his girlfriend and was arrested by armed officers. Detective Inspector Steve Snow, of West Yorkshire Police’s Organised Crime Unit, said: “Zafar Iqbal was identified as a significant individual in the supply and distribution of Class A drugs throughout Bradford. “He admitted meeting, or arranging to meet, Chikwelu on six occasions. Chikwelu was bringing up to one kilo of cocaine, worth £40,000, each time, so hundreds of thousands of pounds of the drug were involved. “His conviction has taken him away from the streets of Bradford, and in particular West Bowling where he was seen by other dealers as potentially untouchable. “His conviction, and significant sentence, which reflects his level of criminality, will send out a message to others who may have looked up to him.”

Artulo Sanders major cocaine drug dealer in Michiana went to prison for 12 to 20 years

Major cocaine drug dealer in Michiana went to prison for 12 to 20 years Friday morning in Cass County Circuit Court.Prosecutor Victor Fitz said Friday morning during sentencing that Artulo Sanders, 33, of 1334 Markle St., Elkhart, Ind., had enough cocaine to get every man, woman and child high in all of Cass County and St. Joseph County."This was his livelihood. He was doing this for years. In the last two years he was involved with the distribution of 10 kilograms worth $500,000 to $1 million."Fitz said he carried a gun, and it wasn't just a one-time deal.He said the whole community was affected by what he did in asking for 15 years minimum.He said it would send a strong message that drug dealers will meet with severe consequences.
After Judge Michael Dodge imposed the prison term which was more than the minimum 10-1/2 years in Sanders' guideline range to a high 17 1/2 years, his family became extremely emotional while leaving the courtroom.Sanders had two defense attorneys, Thomas Swisher of Dowagiac and Tod Urban of Chicago. Urban said he can't be punished for what he has been charged with in the past. He said he is employed and has held three jobs and has six children, two of whom sent letters to the court.
Urban said he accepts responsibility for what he did in asking for the minimum of 10-1/2 years.Sanders apologized for what he did and said he did the wrong thing.Dodge said it was Jan. 7, 2008, when Michigan State Police troopers stopped a vehicle in Edwardsburg at Redfield Street and M-62 in which Sanders was a passenger.
Officers became suspicious after finding marijuana in the vehicle and called in a search dog.The dog sniffed out more than 1,000 grams of cocaine in a hidden compartment in the car.Dodge said his past record is not extensive, however, in considering the large quantity of cocaine, the judge could see no substantial or compelling reason to deviate below the minimum range.He ordered $1,630 in costs.

Bryan Williams and Troy Morris, were both arrested by the police and brought before the court yesterday

The driver and passenger, Bryan Williams and Troy Morris, were both arrested by the police and brought before the court yesterday. Allegations in case are that the police intercepted the vehicle sometime after 7 p.m. after being tipped off with the information. An initial search of the vehicle, on the spot, did not turn up any illegal substance. However, when the vehicle was searched in detail at the Narcotics headquarters the following day, almost six kilo-grams of cocaine was found hidden in a concealed compartment close to the trunk of the vehicle. The men were subsequently charged with possession of, dealing in, taking steps to export, trafficking and conspiracy to export cocaine. Both men have, however, denied knowledge or ownership of the find. When the case appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, Williams' attorney said his client borrowed the vehicle from the owner and had no knowledge of the drug. She also noted that the compartment in which it was found was not a concealed one, as the investigating officer had outlined, but was a standard feature of vehicles of those make, allowing for the storage of lug tools. The Star has learnt that vehicle belonged to Williams' brother, who was now in police custody. All three men are to attend court today when the matter will again be mentioned.

Gregory T. Kaczmarek the city's ex-police chief was handcuffed and hauled off to start a two-year prison sentence for his role in a major drug ring.

Gregory T. Kaczmarek and his wife were spotted buying cocaine outside a local video rental store, the city's ex-police chief was handcuffed and hauled off to start a two-year prison sentence for his role in a major drug ring.At his sentencing Monday in Schenectady County Court for criminal possession of a controlled substance, Kaczmarek apologized to people in "law enforcement and the legal system." "It is my fault, my responsibility, and I accept that," he said before Judge Karen Drago meted out the sentence. Later, in the same courtroom, Lisa Kaczmarek, 49, the former chief's wife, received a six-month jail term for attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance. Her voice trailed off and she wept as she apologized for her wrongdoing. Lisa Kaczmarek, who wore orange prison garb, had turned herself in last month to begin her incarceration at Warren County Jail. Her sentence includes probation for up to five years. The husband and wife were part of a group of some two dozen people who funneled large quantities of cocaine and heroin from Long Island and Manhattan onto the streets of Schenectady. The ringleaders, Kerry Kirkem and Oscar Mora, pleaded guilty to more serious charges and are serving stiff prison terms. All but three of the guilty defendants have now been sentenced. One man charged in the ring remains at large. A probe led by the state attorney general's office initially ensnared Lisa Kaczmarek and her son Miles Smith in May 2008. Gregory Kaczmarek was charged in September. The Kaczmareks at first faced longer sentences on more serious charges. His attorney had said that Kaczmarek pleaded guilty to protect his wife from having to go to prison. On Monday, Assistant Attorney General Michael Sharpe disputed that contention. He said that on Feb. 2 and 6, 2008, Kaczmarek ordered two "eight-balls of cocaine" outside the video rental store and that the Kaczmareks used some of the cocaine and sold some of it.Kaczmarek, whose sentence included a year of postrelease supervision, had previously surrendered his badge, weapons and nurse's license. He will continue to receive his $36,096 annual police pension. He retired in September 2002, according to the state comptroller's office. In court, Greg Kaczmarek defended former Mayor Albert P. Jurczynski, who was chastised in 1996 when he made Kaczmarek the city's top cop at a time when rumors swirled about his drug use. Lisa Kaczmarek's lawyer, Kevin Luibrand, called her behavior "aberrational.The judge noted that Lisa Kaczmarek relapsed after the family restaurant business closed down. "Your demise is your relapse," Drago said, adding the case illustrates that drug addiction affects people in all walks of life. State investigators amassed hours of secretly recorded telephone conversations. In one, Lisa Kaczmarek is heard pleading for a shipment of cocaine with Kirkem for her husband's 56th birthday. In another recorded call, she suggested the ex-chief could transport cocaine for the ring and would "flash his badge" if there was trouble.While Sharpe characterized the couple as members of the drug organization's "lower echelon," he said when Gregory Kaczmarek became aware of the mounting evidence against him he realized it was in his best interest to start talking with authorities about his involvement.Drago said it was "enormously disappointing" to have the former police chief in her court, but she also pointed out that the sentences the couple received were appropriate because they had no prior criminal history and never received pay from the drug dealing. She disagreed with Sharpe that Kaczmarek had a greater moral responsibility to uphold the law because of his job and rank. "The position of being chief doesn't in and of itself warrant a harsher sentence," Drago said.

Jonah M. Simoneau, remains at York County Prison on $150,000 bail.

Police confiscated the drugs and the 2005 Lexus GS300 Simoneau drove.
