Times Herald-Record on December 13, 2011 released the following:
“An FBI-led task force arrested 13 people on federal narcotics charges during coordinated raids at homes in Fallsburg, Liberty and Monticello late Monday night and early Tuesday morning.
Around 100 members of the Hudson Valley Safe Streets Task Force, whose members include FBI agents and local and state police, took part in the raids. Task force members were still looking for a 14th suspect as of 7 a.m.
“These folks are not nickel-and-dime dealers,” said Monticello Police Chief Doug Solomon. “They’re a little bit higher up the food chain.”
The suspects were driven to the FBI’s regional office in Goshen. They are expected to be arraigned later Tuesday in federal court in White Plains.
The suspects are believed to be members or associates of the Bloods gang. Their arrests cap a two-year investigation into narcotics trafficking and gang activity by the task force
“The likely prison sentences that these defendants are going to be facing is going to make everyone think twice,” said Solomon. “I’ll be on Social Security when some of these guys get out.””
