NYPD scored a major win after busting a heroin and PCP drug ring that spanned The Bronx and Manhattan. Early morning raids on Wednesday (March 10) netted kilos of drugs, multiple firearms, cash and the arrest over 20 alleged conspirators.
Reports the New York Daily News:
Cops recovered 14 kilos of heroin, a gallon of liquefied PCP, 14 guns and about $200,000 cash during 15 simultaneous early morning raids in Manhattan and the Bronx.
A bling-loving drug ring sold heroin under the brands “Thriller,” “Crush,” “OMG” and “Pepsi,” and handled PCP by the gallon before cop busted up their operation Wednesday, authorities said.
Police nabbed the ring’s two leaders, as well as 20 lackeys, after a 20-month investigation by NYPD’s Narcotics Borough Manhattan North and the Manhattan D.A.’s office, cops said.
The arrests and indictments were the results of a 20-month long investigation.
The dealers allegedly belong to a pair related drug trafficking organizations that sold the drugs wholesale in Upper Manhattan (read: Harlem, Washington Heights) and the Bronx.
Prices are going up, if you’re into that sort of thing. Check out photos of NYPD’s score below and on the flip.
