Description

Carlos Lehder isn’t a celebrity like Escobar, but the truth is that, without Lehder, Escobar would never have become a wildly famous drug kingpin. 




Lehder, the German-Colombian, drug-trafficking genius was responsible for bringing 85% of the cocaine from Colombia into the United States in the 1970’s and 80’s by way of the Bahamian island Norman’s Cay. 


Ron Chepesiuk, journalist and author of Crazy Charlie, discusses Lehder’s rise and fall - and all the craziness in between. 




This is a Somethin' Else production in association with Vespucci.
