New York Police Busts Brooklyn Drug Ring Run Out of Public Housing in Bed-Stuy

By NY1 News

Eight people were arrested and charged in connection with a Brooklyn drug trafficking ring Friday.

Police say they recovered around 33 pounds of crack, heroin and marijuana through a series of searches.

They also seized four loaded guns — and more than $100,000 in cash and luxury cars.

Officials say the ring started operations last May, and it used NYCHA’s Roosevelt Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant as one of its bases.

Three other people were previously arrested in connection with the ring.

The alleged traffickers face multiple charges including conspiracy, drug possession, and criminal sale of a controlled substance.
