Congolese Embassy Bows To Pressure; Decoy Recording Studio

NORTHEAST—Sometimes a recording studio is not just a recording studio. Sometimes it is a cover for a sting operation by the FBI and DC police. That was the case for one house that ended up netting $7.2 million worth of drugs, 161 weapons, and led to 70 arrests. [WaPo]
