Over the past week I have been on assignment to cover a 'crime spree' that covered half the United states and involved hundreds of individuals. I will attempt to piece the story together for you. It's complicated and confusing. Uncovering the truth was difficult and at one point, when I questioned the 'king pin' of this operation, dangerous.
The story starts in the Bronx, New York. A drug dealer nick named 'Gambian The Pouch' was arrested in a drug sting last fall. He made a deal with the Bronx District Attorneys office to provide operational details, including names of the organizations leaders as he knew them, in exchange for a lighter sentence in a facility where he would be protected.
The story, as told to me by 'Gambian The Pouch' is one that involves an organization so complex that it covered several states with all transactions completed in secrecy and complete anonymity.
Gambian was able to give law enforcement enough information to lead them to a higher up in the organization. A person named Bryan Stime of Kent, Washington. Stime, known in drug dealing circles as 'The Skeleton' because of the plastic skeleton that is known to frequent his car, was picked up on a tip from the New York Stats Police. He was found to be in possession of 'crack cocain' that was ready for street distribution.
Stime, facing a long list off drug related and traffic violation charges, was quick to give up his main supplier and as it turns out the 'ujnder king pin' of this operation.
On the tip from Stime, police in Madison, Wisconsin arrested Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop. The 30 year old was charged with a concealed weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and a violation of probation. This was enough to hold him until a case could be built for running an 'interstate drug ring'.
At this point law enforcement realized that Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop may not be the king pin they originally thought him to be. There had to be someone pulling his strings from above.
This entire case has been built on criminals giving up the next person on the ladder and with Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop it would be no different.
After several hours of interrogation Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop gave up his bosses. A group so vile and secretive that they were not know to law enforcement prior to this time.
Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop gave up Japans feared 'water mafia'. A shadowy group made up of former Japanese National Water Polo team members. The Bronx District Attorney is quoted as saying, "I have often wondered where these Olympic water polo players go after their careers where over".
World wide law enforcement has begun investigations of all retired water polo players. Retired Hungarian National team player Andris Bolyai , at the time of his arrest said, "There are only so many coaching jobs in the water polo world. A man has to be able to make a living."
So after months of investigation, involving hundreds of law enforcement officers, in multiple countries, this case has finally been put to rest.
PS.....I reiterate; I write fiction. LOL!
