DJ arrested for alleged drug smuggling in Korea
Sources said he was Mark Lewis. Lewis, 52, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005 in the category of Best Electronic/Dance Album for “I Found U” that he produced.
Sources said Lewis allegedly smuggled 3.78 liters of gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB), also known as the date rape drug, into Korea four times from January to June. The value is estimated at 370 million won ($340,000) and the quantity enough to dose 1,000 people.
Police said Lewis was caught in June during his fourth attempt to bring in the drug. It was disguised in a water bottle, they said.
Video footage shows him at a customs checkpoint at Incheon International Airport with a 1.5-liter bottle filled with an alleged illegal drug, they said.
Police said a chief at a Korean pharmaceutical company, surnamed Choi, and his twin brother are known to have funded Lewis’ trip to Korea.
Lewis reportedly denies the allegations, saying he did not know the water bottle was filled with drugs. Source Re-Post
