A convicted Haitian cocaine smuggler who had assisted a U.S. investigation of drug trafficking in the administration of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide has been brought once again to the United States to face new narcotics charges.
This time, Jean Eliobert Jasme, who was taken into custody Thursday, is facing narcotics charges in federal court in Milwaukee. He’s accused of conspiring with two Haitian police officers to smuggle cocaine from Colombia through Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas into the United States.

MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey unveiled earlier this week a “ban on no-knock search warrants” — but city police officers still can enter places without announcing their presence in some cases. The new policy, which takes effect Friday, comes nearly two months after a Minneapolis …

Mexico’s Supreme Court has ruled constitutional a controversial energy law pushed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador that gives government-owned power plants preference over private competitors. The law took effect in March 2021, but a number of private energy companies sought injunctions blocking enforcement. The law in Thursday’s ruling establishes that electricity must be bought first from government power plants, which use primarily coal, oil and diesel. If demand requires it, additional electricity could be purchase from private wind, solar and natural gas plants. Critics say the law will create a de facto state monopoly, hurt competition and force Mexicans to buy more expensive and polluting electricity.

Insurance companies challenging the Boy Scouts of America’s bankruptcy plan say it violates their contractual defense rights under policies they issued. They also say the reorganization plan would result in grossly inflated payments of tens of thousands of sexual abuse claims. Insurers made their arguments Thursday before a Delaware judge who must decide whether to approve a BSA plan to compensate tens of thousands of men who say they were sexually abused as children in Scouting. The plan calls for the Boys Scouts and its 250 local councils, settling insurance companies and others, to contribute some $2.6 billion in cash and property into a settlement trust fund for abuse victims.

It’s opening day in Major League Baseball and a new season has brought a new look. The Cleveland team took the field for the first time as the rechristened Guardians. Some players wore patches with No. 21 to honor the late Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente. The National League moved full-time into the realm of the designated hitter. And an umpire announced a replay review decision to the crowd for the first time. The season began with a game at Wrigley Field when the Chicago Cubs hosted the Milwaukee Brewers. Andrew McCutchen got the first hit of the year and also scored the first run.

A researcher was convicted Thursday of illegally concealing work he was doing for China while employed at the University of Kansas. But U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson continues to weigh a defense motion to dismiss the case against Feng “Franklin” Tao of Lawrence, Kansas. Jurors found him guilty of three counts of wire fraud and one count of false statements for not disclosing on conflict of interest forms that he had been named to a Chinese talent program, the Changjiang Professorship, on grant applications. As part of that program he traveled to China to set up a laboratory and recruit staff for Fuzhou University, telling the University of Kansas he was in Germany instead.
DALLAS — Mere hours after they reached 50 wins for the first time in seven seasons, the Mavericks on Thursday morning trended on Twitter.
“Things have been so scary lately with Russia,” states TikTok user @MojoX with dead earnestness in a post from early March, “that I went out and got myself a Gen X bomb shelter.”
Cleveland traded oft-injured outfielder Bradley Zimmer to the Toronto Blue Jays for right-handed reliever Anthony Castro. The teams announced the deal shortly after Cleveland lost its season opener — and first game as the Guardians — 3-1 at Kansas City. Zimmer has been a tantalizing talent since coming up with the Guardians in 2017. However, the rangy, 6-foot-5 Zimmer hasn’t been able to stay healthy since showing so much promise early in his career. The 29-year-old missed most of three seasons with an assortment of injuries and some surgeries. Castro will give the Guardians some early-season bullpen depth.

WASHINGTON — Max Scherzer anticipated that his hamstring tightness would take just a few days to clear up, and this is Mets fans’ first lesson that they should have no reason to doubt him.

Max Scherzer says he is “good to go” for his New York Mets debut in Friday’s second game of the season against the Washington Nationals. This is Scherzer’s return to Nationals Park after he played 6 1/2 seasons with Washington and helped the club win the 2019 World Series. The three-time Cy Young Award winner developed a problem with his right hamstring late in spring training camp in Florida and there had been some uncertainty about when he would be able to make his first appearance of the regular season. Fellow Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom is sidelined for at least a month or two because of a shoulder blade issue.
Sungjae Im of Korea shot a 5-under 67 to take a one-shot lead after the opening round of the Masters. Im opened with a 4-under 32 on the front and used an eagle on the par-5 13th to slip ahead of Australian Cam Smith. Smith overcame a pair of double bogeys to shoot 68. Tiger Woods posted a solid 1-under 71 in his return to major competitive golf following a car accident in February 2021. Defending champion Hideki Matsuyama is at even par. 
Federal prosecutors say four men associated with a Japan-based crime syndicate known as “yakuza” have been charged with trying to negotiate a deal to exchange high-powered weapons for drugs with an undercover U.S. agent. The men were arrested earlier this week in Manhattan after a sting operation led by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Prosecutors said Thursday the DEA agent infiltrated the organization by posing as an arms dealer eager to trade surface-to-air missiles for drugs destined for New York City. The defendants made initial appearances in federal court in Manhattan, where they were ordered held without bail.
The state of Oregon has sued an Illinois-based COVID-19 testing company, saying its owners took millions of dollars in federal funds and insurance money for themselves and boasted about buying a mansion and expensive sports cars. Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum sued the Center for Covid Control, or CCC, and its testing partner, Doctors Clinical Laboratory, for deceptively marketing testing services and for violating Oregon’s Unlawful Trade Practices Act. The lawsuit says the married couple who own CCC had no prior experience in the medical field or medical testing and had run an axe throwing lounge and a photography studio. 
ST. LOUIS — A day that began with a celebration of the past – trophies won and redcoats worn – and recognition of two players nearing the end of their remarkable runs with the Cardinals became a game that affirmed that repeated more recent history.
