Another Guilty Plea in Main Line Drug Ring

Timothy Brooks, one of the masterminds of the Main Line takeover drug ring, pleaded guilty to five counts on Tuesday.

Brooks, 19, say prosecutors, was one of the two ringleaders of the drug ring that sold marijuana and other drugs to students at Main Line high schools and colleges. Prosecutors say Neil K. Scott was more culpable in the scheme, but Brooks is the one who coined the phrase “Main Line takeover project.”

In a Philadelphia magazine story earlier this year, Simon van Zuylen-Wood chronicled the fall of the Main Line drug ring, which was so conspicuous it began to crumble not two months after it began.

Brooks’ lawyer told the Inquirer his client “truly regrets the poor decisions he’s made.”
