Perfect neighbours or owner/operators of a £300m crack lab?

Fourteen members of the British element of an international cocaine smuggling network were jailed for between five and 27 years today. Police said the group - dubbed the "Bling Bling" gang because of their high-living lifestyles - were one of the biggest drug rackets ever brought to justice in the UK. The gang, whose members were mostly of Guyanan and Caribbean descent, had bases in London, Paris and New York and made huge profits.

The Guardian reports.  And The Times of London.
