BOND REVOKED FOR TWO CHARGED IN COKE RING

An Allegheny County judge revoked the bond of two Philadelphia men said to be involved in a large-scale cocaine ring.

The county district attorney's office requested the revocation after a district judge had set bail at $25,000 each after the men were arrested Monday in North Braddock.

During a hearing Wednesday before Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey A. Manning, Deputy District Attorney Brian Catanzarite said $10,000 was found in one car being used by Terry Suggs Jr. along with 18 kilograms of cocaine, while 5 kilograms of cocaine was found in another car being used by Jermaine Clark, alleged to be the leader of the cross-state drug ring.

Officials estimated the cocaine is potentially worth $10 million on the street.

Mr. Catanzarite noted that Clark, 41, had traveled to Colombia, Tucson and Mexico in the last 30 days and had a criminal history including a bank robbery and a home invasion in which someone was shot. Suggs, 34, has a previous conviction for racketeering and drug distribution.

Judge Manning found that both were flight risks.
