U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents in Thailand took five men who are wanted in the United States for trafficking methamphetamine and other drugs in North Korea into custody Tuesday, according to CNN. The men are being flown to New York to face charges that have not yet been made public.

The men arrested, who have British, Filipino, Taiwanese and Slovak citizenship, are part of a broader investigation of U.S. and European men formerly in the military involved in a murder-for-hire and drug-importation ring.
