Drug suspect in Miami is 1st Dane extradited to U.S.
The first Dane ever extradited to the United States on criminal charges was scheduled to appear in federal court in Miami Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Camilla Broe, taken into custody Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service in Denmark, is charged with importing MDMA, also known as ecstasy, into Miami from June 1997 to February 1998.
``This case demonstrates the persistence typical of DEA special agents who will relentlessly hunt drug traffickers no matter how long it takes,'' said Mark R. Trouville, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration's field office in Miami.
