Richie Roberts heads a joint narcotics task force to bring down Harlem drug lord Frank Lucas. more »



US Attorney:
Is it any wonder then, because of your actions, the entire federal narcotics program is now in jeopardy of being dismantled as completely and enthusiastically as that f***ing transport plane? That's what you've accomplished Mr. Roberts. Single-handedly.

Richie:
I had good information the target of my investigation was bringing dope in on that plane.

US Attorney:
And that target is?

Richie:
Frank Lucas.

US Attorney:
Who? Who's Frank Lucas? Who's he work for? Which family?

Richie:
He's not Italian. He's black.

US Attorney:
Is that supposed to be some kind of joke? You're this close to the end of your career in law enforcement, you're making jokes?

Richie:
My investigations indicate that Frank Lucas is above the mafia in the dope business. My investigations also indicate that Frank Lucas buys directly from the source in Southeast Asia, cuts out all the middlemen, and uses US military planes and personnel to transport No. 4 heroin into United States.
