I figured that when these guys got arrested for smuggling spice through the mail that they had done it before:
The U.S. military has come under sharp criticism over a drug-smuggling ring that imported at least one shipment of synthetic marijuana through the military mail system, with South Korean politicians suggesting checks of packages were too lax.
It turns out that at least one defendant has testified he used the South Korean postal system for several shipments, too.
Details about the smuggling ring are still emerging, including how deeply the drug selling penetrated into the Korean community.
Arin Bergquist, a former Camp Casey soldier, told the Seoul Central District Court last month that he ordered from a website at least four shipments of synthetic marijuana, also known as spice, ranging from four to 50 ounces each, between August 2011 and January 2012.
Bergquist said he was discharged in October 2011 but returned to South Korea the following month on a tourist visa and continued to sell spice.
He said he distributed it at $400 per ounce to other soldiers to sell, including his roommate, Pvt. Michael Lehmkuhl of the 70th Brigade Support Battalion, 210th Fires Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division. Both men are charged for taking part in the drug-smuggling ring. [Stars & Stripes]
You can read the rest at the link, but I thought it was interesting that the Korean politicians complaining about the military mail system did not have anything to say about the fact that the drug smugglers were also using the Korean postal system to mail drugs as well. I would have to imagine though that the fact the soldiers were using the post office in Dongducheon must have raised eyebrows considering there is a post office on Camp Casey.
