Super Bowl Drugs, Prostitute Party Packs Spur Crackdown

Jan. 30 (Bloomberg) -- A prostitution and drug ring that was marketing its services to visitors for the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 was broken up with the arrests of many of its alleged leaders, the New York attorney general said.

The Manhattan-based ring sold “party pack” of cocaine and prostitutes, advertised via public access television, the Internet and text messages, and attracted clients from as far away as Texas, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said today. At least 11 of 18 managers of the ring have been arrested for their alleged roles in a “very sophisticated operation,” that appeared to have generated millions of dollars, he said.
