Noel Bloom, Roger Summers, Joe Mallen, Roger Chan, Al Bloom, Los Angeles, California.

In March 1978, Summers stated that his boss, Noel Bloom had problems in Florida approximately seven years ago and that he was somewhat reluctant to ship to Florida because he was under probation in that state. Summers discussed with the agents the possibility of contacting Reuben Sturman at Sovereign News, Cleveland, Ohio, to assure prompt shipment of the "Swedish Erotica" series through Sturman to the agents in Miami, Florida. Between August 1978 and March 1979, the agents had conversations with Summers and Mallen regarding the scheme of shipping "Swedish Erotica" through a third party.
