NZ Sport stars busted for drugs ( Mark Ellis and Matthew Ridge?)

Company director charged over drug ring

A 55-year-old company director is one of several people due in court after police searched 10 places in inner city Auckland yesterday and broke a white collar drug ring.

Police and customs drug officers arrested six people on a variety of drug dealing offences, Counties Manukau police district head Superintendent Ted Cox said.

"This police operation, code-named Aqua, shows that certain drugs are readily available to all spectrums of society and dealing may not be limited to those in the criminal underworld or in gang circles," he said.

The company director, who was due to appear in Auckland District Court yesterday, was alleged to be "at the top end of the drug ring", police said.

He faced numerous charges of supplying or conspiracy to supply methamphetamine, cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis.

Police said others charged were at the lower end of the supply chain, allegedly dealing with groups of close friends or acquaintances.

Well for the record my money is on Matthew Ridge and Mark Ellis. They are ovderseas right now and I can see these teo likely lads being at the hub of this type of thing. We shall see.
