SAN ANSELMO, CA - OCTOBER 17:  A Toyota Prius hybrid vehicle is seen driving down the street October 17, 2006 in San Anselmo, California. Economy and Hybrid vehicles built by Toyota and Honda filled the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy's annual top-10 fuel economy list for 2007 vehicles. The Toyota Prius topped the list with an estimated 60 mpg in the city and 51 mpg on the highway.  (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

A Brooklyn drug ring cut back on gas money and pollutants by operating out of a Toyota Prius, according to NBC New York. Four people were arrested on drug charges over the weekend for delivering and selling cocaine out of the environmentally friendly hybrid car.

Authorities say the four alleged dealers, who are slated to appear in court today, delivered both powdered cocaine and crack cocaine to repeat customers in fancy Brooklyn neighborhoods like Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, and Cobble Hill. No doubt the Prius was a selling point for that set — after all, what kind of monster would purchase illegal substances from a gas-guzzling SUV?
