I always say drug dealers are just intelligent people — who are misguided. A few cocaine bosses in Spain just proved me right once again after they smuggled cocaine from Colombia to Spain in the form of fake Manolo Blahniks. This worked for years.
According to the New York Post, the operation was run by a Colombian man and his wife, who molded paste-like cocaine into the shape of shoes “carefully sculpted to look like the high-heeled, luxury women’s footwear” and placed a Manolo Blahnik label on it. When the fake shoes arrived in Spain, several men would be in charge of returning the paste to its original white powder form and distributing the drugs.
The Telegraph said each coked-up heel had a street value of 50,000 euros a pair, or about $69,000. I don’t even know how people come up with these ideas but they certainly get points for creativity.
I wonder if the shoes were cute.

(MTV) — The manhunt for hip-hop music executive James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond ended Tuesday afternoon (June 21), the DEA confirmed to MTV News. Henchman, who ran the Czar Entertainment management company overseeing the careers of artists like the Game, was arrested in New York City and charged with heading a cocaine trafficking ring. Rosemond has been on the lam since warrants were issued for his arrest on May 17. On Tuesday afternoon, the onetime music manager noticed federal agents as he walked out of the W Hotel in Union Square, according to the New York Post. Henchman tried to evade US Marshals and DEA agents by taking off on foot, but was apprehended and arrested on 21st Street and Park Avenue South. Rosemond was then arraigned in Brooklyn on conspiracy to distribute in excess of five kilograms of cocaine; he is being held without bail, a DEA representative told MTV News.
