Those drug dealers try to be so crafty: A drug ring that would smuggle cocaine in fish shipments and boxes of chow mein was busted yesterday at JFK Airport. The ring had used shell corporations and fake businesses to ship the goods to actual businesses that had nothing to do with the drug trade. Imagine if somehow the drugs weren't picked up and the cocaine was left with the frozen fish or in the boxes of chow mein. That would be some crazy food.

Some of our favorite strange stories of the NYC drug trade: Moving 170 pounds of coke in a couch, turning heroin into furniture, creating bling to launder money, the Eldridge street pot farm, and Floyd Bennett Park as pot farm.
