The former running back for Denver Bronco’s, Derek Loville, 47 years old, has won 2 Super Bowl rings and played for the Denver Broncos. He also played professional football for 2 other NFL teams, the San Francisco 49er’s and the Seattle Seahawks.
He’s involved in a major crime scheme related to drug trafficking charges and more. He has been busted in an international drug trafficking, sports gambling and money laundering ring. Authorities said the charges included threats to debtors, like showing them beheading videos. There are others who are part of the scheme of selling drugs from Arizona across the country to Brooklyn, NY.
According to Fox News Sports, Loville and 21 others were charged Thursday in a sweeping federal indictment. Among those arrested was the group’s ringleader, Owen “O-Dog” Hanson, 33, a former University of Southern California football player. Federal agents arrested Hanson last September at a ritzy California resort. They apprehended him right on the golf course at the 18th hole.
Nineteen of the defendants were rounded up by the feds early Thursday morning throughout the United States.
They were running a sophisticated operation, operated by Hanson, known as “ODOG Enterprise”. Hanson used the services of San Diego accountant, Luke Fairfield, 39, — who’s also named in the indictment — to set up shell corporations to help launder the money, court papers allege.
A man, who remains under a fake name Robin Hood 702, told the Post he broke the case wide open for the FBI. He was a target of the drug ring, so he tattled to get protection. This helped in the investigation.
The traffickers tried to get Robin Hood 702 to launder $20 million dollars. Then, they sent a horrifying DVD to his Santa Monica home that showed two helpless men being beheaded by a pair of psychos wielding a chain saw and a butcher’s knife.
“A family member opened the DVD thinking it was a video of her sister’s newborn baby,” Robin Hood 702 said. “Then she watched it and freaked out.”
Robin Hood 702’s attorney described his client as a, “throwback to the golden era in this country when people weren’t afraid to speak their mind and do what’s right and just.”
All the money in the world isn’t worth going to jail for. I bet Derek Loville is going to think the same way while he’s doing time.
