Police say 'hot kielbasa' was meant for snorting

NEW YORK (AP) -- A Brooklyn butcher shop worker called his specialty "hot kielbasa" - for snorting, not eating. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the kielbasa was really cocaine - not the Polish sausage sold in a popular meat market.

According to a criminal complaint, the "hot kielbasa" was kept in the basement.

Twenty-six suspects are under arrest, including the butcher, after an FBI informant visited the shop in response to the message: "Come to the store, I have hot kielbasa for you."
