Feds Bust Hollywood Drug Ring that Used Charter Planes

By Allan Lengel
For AOL News

Two top executives of a California entertainment company and a DJ who spun records at actor Eddie Murphy’s wedding in 2008 were among 14 people indicted Tuesday for their alleged role in a Hollywood-based drug ring that shipped hundreds of pounds of cocaine on chartered jets from Los Angeles to Baltimore.

A task force of federal and local cops worked the case in which the ring allegedly distributed the drugs in the Baltimore area and then flew suitcases of cash back to Los Angeles, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles said.

Those indicted included Darrin Ebron, 43, a DJ who moves between Washington and Los Angeles, whom The Washington Times described as “‘the poor man’s Puffy’ for his fashion and entertainment businesses that endear him to stars such as Kanye West, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake.”

Ebron, who is also owner of GoodLife American Clothing, reportedly spun the records at Murphy’s wedding to Tracey Edmonds at a private island off Bora Bora two years ago. (About two weeks after the ceremony, the wedding was declared invalid.)

Others indicted included the alleged ring leader, James Brascom, 28, CEO of Behind da Scenes Entertainment, and Charles Dwight Ransom Jr., 36, of Hollywood, who is also a CEO of that company, authorities said.
