Before he took up serial bombing, Brett Kimberlin was a wholesale dope dealer and drug smuggler. This post from ten years ago today took a look at Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin’s Caribbean Adventures.

Before he took up bombing, TDPK earned his living as a wholesale dope dealer and drug smuggler. In 1978, he was caught while trying to retrieve 50 lb bales of marijuana that had been jettisoned from a DC-4 flying in from Colombia. The plane had been carrying 5 tons of dope when it ran into trouble and found it would have to land at the wrong airstrip.
It seems that TDPK had been keeping his supply line running via air over the Caribbean.
BTW, 10,000 lb of dope is not the kind of buy made causally on the street. Back in the ’70s, that kind of quantity was cartel business, usually Cali. The other cartels had moved on to coke by then.
Stay tuned. There’s plenty of interesting stuff ahead.
Tick, tock, tick, tock, …

BTW, Kimberlin pleaded guilty to the dope charge, so even if the Supreme Court were to take his appeal and find in his favor on the Speedway Bombing convictions, The
Dread Deadbeat Pirate Pusher Kimberlin will still be a felon.
