The El Flamingo in Boulevard Park was used as a cover for a major drug ring.

According to The Seattle Times, the drug ring leader busted in a major Boulevard Park drug raid back in May was sentenced Monday at the US District Court in Seattle to more than six years in prison for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and heroin.

Domingo Bailon-Yanez, 30, a Mexican national, is likely be deported after his prison term, federal prosecutors said.

This was a major drug bust – in all, ten arrests were made, two kilos of cocaine and a pound of heroin seized; along with three guns, eight cars and $40,000 in cash. In May, search warrants netted more than 36 pounds of cocaine, three guns and more than $203,000 in cash.

Fed nicknamed the bust “Operation Pink Tiger,” which referred to the nickname of one of the defendants as well as the lovely, bright pink cellophane wrapping the bad guys so courteously used on their cocaine.

And who said they don’t know how to party in Boulevard Park?
