Box Investor To Be Sentenced For Role In International Drug Smuggling Ring

Guest of a Guest got their hands on legal docs charging Cordell Lochin (who, with Serge Becker, is a major backer of the Lower East Side hotpost The Box) of running a drug smuggling operation. In the filing, the government alleges the operation ran Montreal-grown pot over the border—the docs say Lochin handled the operation's distribution in New York City. He has been charged with conspiracy to import marijuana, conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute marijuana and money laundering. He pleaded guilty to the first two counts and will be sentenced in two weeks.
