15 charged with drug crime in New York, warrants for 7 more

Some 22 people have been arrested and charged with drug crimes following a nearly year-long investigation in Yonkers, according to local sources. New York police targeted a number of suspected drug dealers in the sting operation, many of whom were arrested on the morning of Dec. 6. The drug crime charges filed against these individuals are varied, and could result in jail time if convictions are secured. 

According to the report issued by New York authorities, suspects targeted in this sting were believed to have been selling heroin, crack and powder cocaine. This information reportedly comes from a 10-month investigation into drug trafficking enterprises in the Yonkers area, according to the police commissioner. The operation was conducted under the name "Clean Slate" and targeted the west side of the city specifically.

A 30-year-old man and a 27-year-old man are now facing drug crime charges for their involvement in the alleged activities taking place at the residence.

According to the report filed by Suffolk police, an investigation of indeterminate duration led authorities to believe drug activity was taking place in the East Patchogue residence. As a result, elements of the Emergency Service Section, Special Operations from the Seventh and Fifth Precincts, as well as gang and crime units, descended upon the residence around 4:27 p.m. Officers on site said they discovered what they believe to be marijuana, cocaine and heroin, as well as drug paraphernalia, phones, a car and almost $2,000 in cash.

Three people are facing a large list of charges after being busted by police on Long Island in and around the weekend of Nov. 25. Multiple drug crime charges have been filed against all three individuals, who were apprehended by New York authorities after an alleged drug deal. It is unclear whether any of these individuals have yet retained criminal defense counsel.

According to authorities, the arrests took place in Westbury where two offers on patrol noticed a vehicle parked in a dark, secluded section of a parking lot. Upon investigating what they claim was a suspicious vehicle, they found a man and a woman believed to be related as well as a third man in the vehicle. They were believed to be in possession of heroin, cocaine and fentanyl, though police have not explained how they came to this determination.

According to officers in Southeast, who reported the arrest on Nov. 19, the 33-year-old man was pulled over around 2:40 a.m. the morning of Oct. 30. A deputy allegedly observed him commit a traffic violation of unknown type. He was pulled over in the westbound lanes of Interstate 84.

Aggravated assault: Things you need to know

As the name suggests, aggravated assault is punished more severely than simple assault as a result of the seriousness of the crime. For example, the use of a weapon can lead to charges of aggravated assault.

Since this is such a serious crime, a conviction can result in a penalty as severe as multiple years in prison. This is why a criminal charge should lead you to learn as much as possible about your legal rights, including the steps you can take to protect them.

Woman in New York charged with alleged drug crime

A woman who has experienced legal trouble in the past is now facing new charges, according to local police.

The woman had previously served a year in a correctional facility on a similar charge from May 2017 to May 2018. She is currently in custody awaiting a trial date.

According to the police report, the woman was arrested by Plattsburgh City Police after a warrant was issued by a city court justice. Apparently local authorities had been looking into the woman for some time, as she was the subject of a considerable investigation. The details of her arrest were not included in this report, nor were details concerning why police found her suspect to begin with.

According to the New York State Police report, the 55-year-old man was pulled over in Pleasant Valley after allegedly committing a traffic violation. Police determined the man was driving with a suspended license and initiated a further search. It is unclear what that search entailed, or whether the man's rights were observed during this investigation. 

Men in New York faces drug crime charges

Three men have been arrested following an investigation into alleged drug-related activity. The men in Port Jefferson have been arrested on New York drug crime charges after it was alleged they used a barbershop on Long Island to sell potentially thousands of dollars in illicit narcotics. Due to the serious accusation, each man is likely considering criminal defense options as the cases head to court. 

According to the report, the indictment contains some 53 counts of drug-related criminal activity, and was unsealed on Oct. 24. Three men, a 41-year-old, a 64-year-old and a 33-year-old, were all named in the indictments. They allegedly maintained a drug sale operation out of a barbershop in Port Jefferson Station. It is claimed that they were actively selling drugs to customers during normal business operation of the barbershop. 

7 people arrested in New York on drug crime charges

A raid conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation has resulted in seven arrests in New Rochelle, according to local sources. FBI authorities worked closely with New York law enforcement to conduct the raid, which was targeting alleged drug crime in the neighborhood. If convicted, they could face a mandatory 10 year sentence, or a maximum sentence of life in prison. 

The details of the investigation that led up to the raid were sparse in this report, but it has been confirmed that federal and local authorities targeted a Mexican grocery store in New Rochelle as a potential jumping-off point for drug trafficking. The raid was conducted around 5 a.m. the morning of Oct. 11, and involved both federal agents and New Rochelle police. They say they uncovered considerable amounts of drugs, including kilograms of what they believe to be cocaine, and at least 50 grams of methamphetamine. 

Several doctors face drug crime charges

A drug bust on Staten Island has resulted in ten arrests, among them five doctors, three medical assistants and a pharmacist, according to state police. New York authorities conducted a sting operation after an investigation led them to believe that pain medication was being illegally prescribed by these individuals. All of those arrested now face serious drug crime charges and each could face jail time if found guilty. 

The details of the operation were limited in this report. However, it has been confirmed that authorities were tracking the spread of drugs like oxycodone, the popular opiate used to treat pain in patients. It is known to be highly addictive, and oxycodone is often in the news as one of the major drugs contributing to the so-called "opiate crisis" in the mid-United States.
