SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

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. 

The individuals involved all face charges of conspiracy to distribute the drugs, a serious crime under New York and federal law. A total of seven people were arrested, though it is unclear at this time whether they are in police custody. It is also unclear whether any of these individuals have retained criminal defense counsel at this time. 

Life in prison is a sobering thought and a harsh sentence. That's one reason why due process is so important to the American legal system. Each of the individuals accused of drug crime will have the opportunity to contest the formal charges in federal court, accompanied by their defense representation.
