SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

New York marijuana drug ring nipped in the bud: 10 arrested

Ten people are facing charges over a million-dollar drug ring. The drug charges stem from a ring allegedly operating out of the Bronx. Police said the suspects had been under surveillance during the time they allegedly sold more than 6,500 pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $22 million. The time frame, cops said, was between March 2016 to October 2017.

Apartment searches apparently also yielded guns and ammo, kilos of cocaine and thousands in cash. The suspects were arrested in multiple raids as a part of Operation Green Giant. The marijuana apparently made its way around the United States, coming back to New York with the profit laundered to California. Arrests took place at 12 area locations in the Bronx, which allegedly served as stash homes for not only drugs, but weapons and money.

Acting on search warrants, police found a sawed-off shotgun and three handguns in addition to the drugs and cash. One of the charges facing some of the accused is conspiracy to distribute narcotics, which carries the hefty sentence of a maximum penalty of life in prison, with a mandatory minimum of 10 years. Others were charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics with a maximum penalty of life in prison, with a mandatory minimum of five years. Some were also charged with the use of firearms in furtherance of narcotics trafficking.

Those facing drug charges -- including marijuana -- would do well to enlist the help of a New York attorney experienced in criminal law. Defendants have the right to an aggressive defense. An attorney can ensure his or her client was arrested using the proper means under the law and will address any violations on his or her client's behalf in the court room.
