Police: High-end drug and prostitution ring busted on Super Bowl week

(CNN) -- The 18 operators of a high-end drug trafficking and prostitution ring allegedly banking on Super Bowl week to deliver "party packs" of cocaine and prostitutes have been arrested, New York authorities said Thursday.

The nearly year-long undercover investigation discovered that in addition to selling the so-called "party packs," the ring allegedly laundered the illegal proceeds through front businesses that included a clothing wholesaler, a wig wholesaler, a limousine service and a beauty supply wholesaler, New York Attorney General Schneiderman said in a statement.

The ring allegedly generated millions of dollars in illegal proceeds and planned to target high-end clientele coming to the New York area for the Super Bowl.
