Defendants in alleged Main Line drug ring waive hearings


The defendants in an alleged marijuana ring at Main Line schools have waived their arraignments and are scheduled to return to court next month.

Arraignments had been scheduled Wednesday for Neil K. Scott, 18, of Villanova, and several of his alleged "sub-dealers." Others had already waived their hearings.

Scott and his partner, Timothy Brooks, are charged with enlisting nine other students and alumni to sell drugs to students at elite Main Line schools - including the Haverford School, Lower Merion High School, Harriton High, Radnor High, Haverford College and Lafayette College.

Montgomery County prosecutors announced the bust in April.

Nine of the defendants will be tried together, with a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 30.

Two other alleged sub-dealers are being tried as juveniles.

In addition to marijuana, Scott and Brooks allegedly pedaled cocaine, ecstasy and other drugs, and called their business "the Main Line takeover project," prosecutors say.
