DEA Bust Takes $50 million in Heroine off NYC Streets

The DEA announced Tuesday that they have successfully seized 154 pounds of heroin, preventing the drug from reaching the streets of New York City.

Along with the conservative estimate of $50 million in heroin, the Drug Enforcement Agency also arrested two men believed to be running a large drug ring related to the Mexican Cartel. According to DEA Special Narcotics Prosecutor, Bridget G. Brennan, “…this load was so large it carried the potential of supplying a dose of heroin to every man, woman and child in New York City”. Later searches of the NYC residences of the two arrested men brought the DEA to also discover $2 million in cash stashed away in the floorboards. This bust was the result of a yearlong joint investigation between the DEA, NYPD Investigators, and state police detectives. o-HEROIN2-570 o-MONEY-570
