NORRISTOWN, Pa. - Prosecutors say more than a dozen people have been arrested in a ring they say mailed Oxycodone pills concealed in toy teddy bears and rabbits from California to Montgomery County for sale by drug dealers.
The Montgomery County district attorney's office said Tuesday that 13 people have been arrested and three more are being sought on various charges related to drug trafficking, firearms trafficking and forgery.
Montgomery County prosecutors say 29-year-old Amir Green from Ardmore was the ringleader behind the alleged drug and gun trafficking ring with his girlfriend 24-year-old Kadesah Wright from Philadelphia.
Prosecutors allege that the drugs were concealed inside "teddy bear and bunny rabbit stuffed animals" and mailed to Montgomery and Delaware county apartments that had been leased using fraudulent and/or stolen identities.
Authorities allege the group also dealt in illegal firearm sales, marijuana and other drugs.
