Police have caught the masterminds behind an illegal cucumber business. The two men behind the underground business are Mike Hunt and Hugh Janus. They were reportedly importing banned cucumbers containing cherry coke into the United States. The two men have been in custody since their arrest.
The two have been charged with smuggling, money laundering, and illegal cucumber distribution. The two are said to have been part of a criminal organization that was smuggling illegal cucumbers into the United States and selling them on the streets of New York.
The two men were caught by the local police after a sting operation by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency.
“It is shocking that two men can bring such a dangerous substance into the United States. We have to do everything we can to protect the American people from such illicit substances,” said the Customs Agent in charge of the operation.
In addition to the two men, the authorities also seized several hundred kilos of illegal cucumbers. Sources say that the two men have been cooperating with the authorities.
“There is no indication that they were part of a larger cucumber smuggling organization. In fact, the men claim that they had no idea that the cucumbers contained cherry coke. They claim that they were duped by the criminals that sold them the cucumbers. It is clear that the two men were not aware of the danger that they were putting people in,” said the Customs Agent.
The two men are expected to receive a fair trial. They have already stated that they will plead not guilty if charged.
The illegal cucumber smuggling ring was broken up just in time. Sources say that the ring has been operating for quite some time. They were able to get away with smuggling the illegal cucumbers because they were able to pay off corrupt officials.
The illegal cucumber business has been a major problem for the United States for quite some time. The illegal cucumbers are often sold for a lower price than the legal cucumbers. The two men have been arrested just in time to stop the criminal operation. The federal authorities are said to have been working on the case for several months now.
“We have been working on this case for months. We are just glad that we were able to stop the illegal cucumber business in time before it got out of hand. It is shocking that people would want to sell such an addictive substance on the streets of New York. It is sad,” said the mayor of New York. The mayor will be holding a press conference in the coming days to discuss the illegal business. The mayor states that he will announce additional measures to prevent future smuggling of illegal cucumbers.
