Super Bowl

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Officials say 18 people are being rounded up in New York City on allegations they sold “party packs” of cocaine and sex to high-end clients and texted clients to advertise ahead of this week’s Super Bowl festivities.

The officials say the arrests follow an 11-month investigation by state and city authorities. The law enforcement officials with knowledge of the operation spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to disclose it before court filings Thursday.

They say surveillance shows the ring laundered money and credit cards through clothing, wig, beauty supply and limousine businesses and targeted wealthy out-of-town customers, especially during large events.

Prostitutes would bring cocaine to clients who ordered the so-called party packs.

The text sent 10 days before the Super Bowl says “new sexy & beautiful girls R in town waiting for u.”

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — If you’re still waiting to make a prediction on Sunday’s Super Bowl, you may want to hold off until Thursday when a Utah ape who has correctly picked the winner six straight years makes his selection.

The ape, named Eli, will choose between papier mache helmets of the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks Thursday morning at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. Zookeepers let the full grown orangutan loose in the room with the helmets and the one he touches first is his pick.

Erica Hansen of Hogle Zoo says Eli sometimes waits and thinks it over. Last year, though, he charged right out and knocked over a papier mache goal post decorated with the Ravens logo.

Hansen says interest and excitement about Eli’s Super Bowl pick has increased as his streak grows.
