Narcotics cops seized 28 pounds of dope from a theater district heroin mill yesterday -- a stash worth a Wicked $6.5 million.
The drugs were found at 417 West 43rd Street, inside a Next To Normal-seeming ground floor duplex just two blocks from Times Square, officials said. The residential building sits across the street from Actors Studio and a block north of Theatre Row. The bust was part of a long-term investigation by the DEA, the NYPD, State Police and the city Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor. Four alleged American Idiots are in custody in connection with the bust, said the city's Special Narcotics Prosecutor, Bridget Brennan, who noted the unexpected location.
"If our investigators were surprised, you can only imagine the shock of neighbors, commuters and theater-goers," Brennan said.
Today, one of my husband's old college buddies came over for dinner. We reminisced about our college days, and he laughed as he told the story about my husband making up a friend, Marc Deveau, that he'd say he was visiting when he was cheating on his girlfriend. My husband still sees Marc Deveau. FML
