Drug Ring Busted In CNY

Syracuse, NY (WIBX) – 38 people are facing various charges after the alleged bust of a drug distribution ring in Central New York.

A year-long investigation, led by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s Organized Crime Task Force, resulted in the seizure of more than $200,000 in cocaine.

Officials say the cocaine was allegedly part of a drug pipeline stretching from Georgia to New York City, with distribution points in Syracuse and Auburn.

Two drug investigations, with the code names “Operation Rockwell” and “Operation Re-do,” were conducted through the use of physical surveillance of suspects and wiretaps.

The individuals, ranging in age from 19 to 71, are facing 166 total charges, including Criminal Sale and Possession of a Controlled Substance, Conspiracy, and Operating as a Major Trafficker.

According to the AG, Operating as a Major Trafficker is the only felony narcotics charge in New York carrying a possible life sentence. The felony was written by Schneiderman during his time as a lawmaker, and went into effect with other Rockefeller-era drug laws.
