Guilty plea for Va. man in D.C. cocaine-carryout scheme

A Centreville man pleaded guilty Thursday to distributing cocaine from his Northwest Washington carryout restaurant, authorities said.

Suk in Hyun, 53, pleaded guilty to a scheme in which two other men paid him to arrange cocaine sales inside the D.C. Fish Carryout in the 3400 block of 14th Street NW, which he operated.

Craig McKoy, 44, would bring people to the store, according to the U.S. attorney’s office, after which Hyun would call a cocaine dealer, who would come to the store and complete the sale.

Timothy Hill, 25, delivered the cocaine to the store and then paid Hyun a percentage of the sale, authorities said.

Hill and McKoy, of the District, had pleaded guilty to drug charges, authorities said. Hyun faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of as much as $500,000. He is scheduled to be sentenced in January.
