Carlos Lehder Cartel Kingpin

Retired Intelligence Detective Gary Jenkins brings you the best in mob history with his unique perception of the mafia. Gary interviews true crime author Ron Chepesiuk about an upcoming series on VIX TV he helped write. Ron is a well-known and prolific author and expert on the South American cocaine cartels. In this episode, we discuss Carlos Lehder.
We learn that Lehder began his criminal career stealing cars and making small sales of marijuana. He met the famous cocaine smuggler (see Blow with Johnny Depp) George Jung in prison. In the film Blow, Carlos connected Jung with Pablo Escobar, and together these two men brought thousands and thousands of cocaine kilos into the United States. They were the first to use airplanes that flew directly from the Colombian jungles to Norman Key in the Bahamas. These men sent planes or boats to Florida from their own private island.
