Massive Drug Arrests At Boeing Military Aircraft Plant

US Nabs Boeing Workers On Drug Charges At Military Aircraft Plant -- Wall Street Journal

PHILADELPHIA (Dow Jones)--Federal prosecutors charged about three dozen current and former employees of a Boeing Co. (BA) military-aircraft plant with selling or buying prescription drugs that workers allegedly abused on the job.

Federal agents raided the Ridley Park, Pa., plant Thursday morning and arrested a majority of those charged. Prosecutors said 36 of the people were either current or former Boeing employees, while one person charged was neither.

The Ridley Park plant, which employs about 6,000 workers, produces the CH-47 Chinook helicopter and V-22 Osprey aircraft, a hybrid of a helicopter and airplane. Both products are used by the U.S. military. Most of the people arrested Thursday worked in the production area of the plant.
