Lim claimed that his group had stockpiled one ton of North Korean meth in the Philippines “(b)ecause we already anticipated this thing would happen . . . (with the result being) we cannot bring adidas springblade women out our goods right now.”
According to prosecutors, Shackels was an intermediary for a test run with samples of the North Korean meth. The samples tested at 98% and 96% pure, prosecutors allege.
Stammers, Shackels and Alexander agreed to provide security for another test run, using a shipment of tea leaves, to check delivery channels to Thailand. From there the drugs would be repackaged and shipped to the United States, according to prosecutors.
