    The Ex-Army Sniper Who (Allegedly) Became an International Contract-Killing Drug Kingpin

    Five men have been charged with conspiracy to import 100 kilograms of nearly pure North Korean-produced methamphetamine into the United States, and federal officials said the case illustrates the emergence of North Korea as a player in the global drug trade.

    The men were part of a sprawling international drug trafficking ring led by a former American soldier, Joseph Manuel Hunter .... The five men — including British, Chinese and Philippine nationals — were arrested in Phuket, Thailand, in September and were extradited to the United States on Tuesday night. They appeared in federal court in New York on Wednesday.

    According to the U.S. government, the Hong Kong-based crime syndicate agreed to provide 100 kilograms of meth—at $60,000 a kilo—to a man who they believed was a drug trafficker but who was, you guessed it, working with the DEA.
