VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — A South Korean woman wanted in the United States for her alleged involvement in a crime ring that sold drugs and prostitutes in New York City prior to the Super Bowl weekend has been detained in Vancouver.

Canada Border Services Agency said Wednesday Kyong Bin Cho, also known as Jackie, was arrested at Vancouver’s airport on Saturday.

News of Cho’s arrest comes almost two weeks after U.S. authorities charged 18 people for allegedly running a crime ring that sold so-called party packs of cocaine and prostitutes to people coming to New York for the Super Bowl.

Border agency spokeswoman Amitha Carnadin says Cho, 44, is accused of fleeing the U.S. after the police bust and arrived in Vancouver via Mexico.
