Brooklyn UPS workers accused of delivering drugs
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Two UPS workers have been busted in Brooklyn, accused of using their jobs as a front for a drug operation.
The suspects were arrested after narcotics detectives got a tip.
They say five 5-gallon buckets filled with 30 pounds of marijuana were placed onto a UPS truck in Canarsie.
The buckets were then driven to a man in a van on Farragut Road.
Police say 44-year old Ruben Jordan removed the package from the delivery truck, and placed into a Chrysler minivan being driven by 58-year old Donovan Hyde.
Hyde and the two UPS workers are charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal sale of marijuana.
