Two graduates of the prestigious all-boys prep school The Haverford School have been charged with controlling a drug ring that had attempted to create a "drug monopoly" serving Philadelphia's Main Line, reports NBC New York.
Neil Scott and Timothy Brooks, whose mugshot snaps eerily remind me of the lacrosse players who used to make fun of me in homeroom, were apparently controlling a network of "sub-dealers" who sold drugs to high schools and colleges in the area. Scott and Brooks were taken down in an operation called the "Main Line Take Over Project," according to Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman.
While the story of prep school drug dealers selling pot, hash oil, coke, and MDMA may sound like the plot to the new 21 Jump Street sequel, Ferman is clear that the culprits meant serious business. “This was not a game. These people were in business, they were in business to make money and they were going to do whatever they needed to do so that no one threatened their business," Ferman said.
It seems like she's right, too. Prosecutors say they have confiscated eight pounds of weed, three grams of hash oil, 23 grams of cocaine, 11 grams of Ecstasy, $11,000 cash, a loaded handgun, and two assault rifles.
