Suspected drug traffickers arrested in the Bronx and Westchester

Multiple searches have taken place throughout the Bronx and Westchester, and these searches have led to the arrests of nine suspected members of a drug trafficking ring.

Agents seized a total of over $170,000 in cash, six firearms, and 17,000 glassine envelopes of heroin. In total, over 30 pounds of heroin and fentanyl were found.

The urgency of the searches

Law enforcement officials were eager to arrest the key players in the drug trafficking ring because of the rise in opioid-related overdoses and deaths in recent years. In 2017, two fatal overdoses and two non-fatal overdoses in the Bronx and Westchester sparked an investigation to bring the drug ring to justice.

The nature of the searches

Several court-authorized searches took place in different locations. Illegal drugs, cash, and deadly weapons were found stockpiled and hidden in a variety of ways. Hidden traps were discovered in cars on one searched property, leading law enforcement officials to seize around 250 grams of fentanyl and more than $35,000 in cash.

The legal consequences of drug trafficking in New York

Being found with any amount of a controlled substance or narcotic drug with the intent to sell will lead to an automatic felony charge.

If you are concerned about drug laws in New York and believe that you may be at risk of facing charges, it is best to take early action. You should start by taking the time to understand how the law would apply to you. An experienced criminal defense attorney can provide valuable guidance and can work to protect your rights.
