It’s just been over a week since an exciting announcement that a major new music festival will be coming to Denver this fall called Grandoozy Music Festival.

Movement Festival just unleashed their full lineup and fans have some serious mixed feelings.
Although there is quite a bit of hype over the well known hip-hop group, Wu-Tang Clan, being the closing headliner set of the three-day electronic music festival in Detroit.

Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Postal Service first learned about the operation during a 2016 investigation into the large-scale smuggling of various controlled substances from Europe into the U.S. via mail. On April 7, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized two inbound packages at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, court documents state. Authorities found 1,000 “Red Supreme” ecstasy pills in each package. One of the packages was addressed to 38-year-old Kenneth Howard in Chelsea and the other was addressed to 31-year-old Jennifer Petitjean in Bessemer.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and U.S. Postal inspectors were contacted. Authorities said ALEA and the inspectors arranged controlled deliveries of the packages. Those deliveries led to subsequent controlled deliveries of the drugs to Howard’s cousin, 28-year-old Kevin Pederson, and to Ochle, who was identified as the leader of the drug-trafficking organization.
In the seizure, 20,000 pressed ecstasy pills and four pounds of crystal molly were found. They all pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute MDMA and are awaiting sentencing. With the exception for Howard who received eight weekends in custody.
