The New York Post on March 13, 2012 released the following:

“By KIERAN CROWLEY and MITCHEL MADDUX

The FBI staged raids on homes across Long Island this morning in a major operation aimed at taking down a heroin trafficking ring, and among those charged are a former Suffolk County police officer and the spouse of a NYPD cop, officials said.

Agents took 20 people into custody — a group that allegedly had drugs estimated to have a street value of at least $2.75 million.

Among those being charged are a retired Suffolk County police officer and his daughter, authorities said.

The spouse of an NYPD officer was also rounded up in the bust.

Authorities say the ringleader is Jose Perez, 26, who oversaw a heroin distribution scheme that focused on suburban customers living on Long Island.

The FBI, aided by Nassau County police and other law enforcement agencies, were making arrests in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, as well as in Brooklyn and Queens in New York City, officials said.

Those arrested will be arraigned later today before judges in Central Islip federal court.”
