Alleged drug kingpin nabbed at SFO 

He was on the lam for nearly four decades, but a suspected member of an LSD distribution ring was arrested at San Francisco International Airport last weekend.

San Francisco police Lt. Bill Darr said Brenice Lee Smith was taken into custody after arriving from Nepal.

He was arrested on two nearly 40-year-old warrants issued in Orange County that were related to the sale and possession of narcotics.

The 64-year-old Smith is suspected of being part of the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, which Rolling Stone magazine dubbed the “Hippie Mafia.”

The group is suspected of smuggling large amounts of hashish from Pakistan and Afghanistan and producing and distributing “Orange Sunshine” LSD.
