New York man charged with trading drugs for weapons in Georgia

 

A leader of a News York-based gang will receive more than six years of prison time after being arrested while attempting to trade cocaine and heroin for a collection of firearms in Georgia.

The gang leader, a member of the famous Bloods gang, and another man were apprehended after they travelled across state lines from New York to Brunswick, Georgia, with the intent of exchanging the narcotics for the cache of weapons, ostensibly to return to New York and sell them, including some semi-automatic weapons and an assault rifle. However, when they arrived at the hotel room where the deal was to take place, they were met by an agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. According to reports, they were taken into custody without a struggle, and no one was harmed in the confrontation.

 

The gang leader had previously been sentenced to seven months of prison time for other state-level crimes, followed by three years of probation. Within the federal system, there are no provisions for parole, so the man’s sentencing will be less flexible.

The authorities noted that Georgia is often the state of choice for individuals from states with more strict gun laws who wish to purchase firearms. This incident is simply the latest in an ongoing pattern of ambitious individuals seeking to buy guns in Georgia for resale elsewhere.

Regardless of the nature of the charges a person may be facing or the number of prior convictions he or she may have, it is crucial to the integrity of the justice system that the individual has access to the best criminal defense available. A qualified criminal defense attorney can ensure that all people are treated with respect in the eyes of the law while their rights remain protected.
