Four Long Island men were recently arrested in connection with a New York-to-Los Angeles smuggling ring that apparently operated out of some pretty classy cars, according to The Wall Street Journal (via Gothamist).They reportedly stashed the drugs and cash in hidden compartments built into the cars, which were then carried cross-country on truck transports.

According to the WSJ:

The prosecutor said police seized $3 million worth of cocaine, $900,000 in cash, steroids, money counters and other paraphernalia from several locations.

Also seized were eight vehicles, including a Mercedes-Benz and two Cadillac SUVs.

The men were reportedly selling the cocaine in New York for five times the price they paid for it in California; their ringleader is still being sought.
