Among those facing drug trafficking and money laundering charges is Darrin Ebron, who runs Goodlife American Clothing and was the DJ at Eddie Murphy's 2008 nuptials in Bora Bora. The 43-year-old Ebron and three others are being sought by investigators. Several arrests have already been made.
If convicted, each of the defendants could face up to life in prison.
Authorities allege the ring smuggled hundreds of pounds of cocaine via private jets from Southern California to Baltimore. They seized nearly 300 kilograms of cocaine and $1.1 million.
Dana Sarabeck, a former spokeswoman for Ebron's clothing line, declined to comment. The phone number to Goodlife's office was disconnected.
