Ex-Korean gang member indicted for alleged drug smuggling from Mexico
SEOUL, May 29 (Yonhap) -- Prosecutors said Sunday they indicted a former U.S.-based Korean gang member on charges of smuggling drugs from Mexico and selling them in South Korea, the first known case of drug smuggling from the Latin American nation.

The 42-year-old, identified only as Moon, allegedly brought in a total of 287 grams of methamphetamine, or 9,600 doses, from Mexico on 22 occasions via international courier services between December 2009 and May last year, prosecutors said.

It marked the first case of uncovering a drug smuggling route from Mexico into South Korea, where most smuggled drugs in circulation are believed to be from neighboring China.

Moon, a former member of the largest U.S.-based Korean gang, "Last Generation Korean Killers," stuck 4-50 grams of drugs into Christmas cards, parcels and other mail from the Latin American nation, prosecutors said.

Early last year, South Korean prosecutors launched a joint investigation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and Moon was taken into custody in Mexico in June. But eight days later, he managed to flee the detention center.

Mexican authorities said he broke a prison wall made of plaster and fled, but he later told authorities that he bribed his way out of the detention center.

After 10 months on the run, Moon turned himself in to authorities in Mexico and was extradited to South Korea earlier this year.

New Extradition Treaty with Korea Nets First Wanted Felon

"New Extradition Treaty with Korea Nets First Wanted Felon"



Who:
Representatives from the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office

What:
Press Conference to Announce Arrest of Dangerous Fugitive as a Result of U.S./Korea Extradition Treaty

Where:
Parker Center
150 North Los Angeles Street, Los Angeles

When:
Tuesday, October 30, 2001
1:00 p.m.

Los Angeles: In September 1996, Detective Maureen Ryan Correa, Robbery-Homicide Division (RHD), Rape Special Section, began an investigation of several rape/robberies that were occurring in the Koreatown community of Los Angeles. It was determined that members of a Korean gang known as "Last Generation Korean Killers" (LGKK) were responsible for the crimes. Their crime spree included what first appeared to be common street robberies, but were actually a part of a complex conspiracy. The case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office where Deputy District Attorney Michael Carter secured a 43 count grand jury indictment on seven LGKK members, including the leader, Hyun Gu "Eddie" Kang in August 1997.

Investigators assigned to the Department's RHD, conducted a painstaking investigation into this matter, resulting in the arrest of all known suspects. The suspects were brought to trial in November 1998. The trial lasted until February 1999, resulting in the conviction of Kang, and his co-defendants, on numerous felony counts. All of the defendants, at sentencing, faced possible life sentences. Immediately after his conviction, Kang posted a two and one-half million-dollar bond. He subsequently fled to Korea to avoid imprisonment. A warrant for Kang's arrest was issued on June 14, 1999.

On December 20, 1999, the United States of America entered into an extradition treaty with the Republic of Korea. In October 2000, Kang was arrested in Korea on Drug charges and the Korean authorities notified the United States Government. In light of the signed extradition treaty between the two nations, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, aggressively pursuing this case, initiated extradition proceedings with the Republic of Korean Government.

The Korean authorities agreed to extradite Kang and after more than two years on the run, Kang was returned to the United States by U.S. Marshals on October 29, 2001. It is believed that he is the first person extradited under the newly enacted treaty. He was turned over to the custody of the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Kang was sentenced, in absentia, to 271 years to life in prison and will be remanded to the California Department of Correction on October 31, 2001.












this was pretty much the end of LGKK sounds like
