Police Search Leads to Massive Drug Bust

NYPD officers assisting Jersey City cops in a search that led to Brooklyn found themselves in a drug den with nearly $1 million in cash and 100 pounds of drugs in a Crown Heights apartment.

From the NY Daily News:

The NYPD officers were helping the New Jersey police track down a man wanted on arson and terroristic threat charges, authorities said.

The joint forces went, with a search warrant, cops said, to the Crown Heights apartment on Montgomery St. near Schenectady Ave. at about 10 p.m. Friday.

They arrested Humphrey Olivio, 36, Yazmin Olivio, 30, and Jose Pichardo, 24, on charges including criminal possession of marijuana and criminal sale of marijuana.

    And they were still not happy. That’s cold (maybe counterfeit) cash, and I’m sure they had more in other locations.
    There should be a death penalty for possession of More than a day’s worth of drugs.

      Death penalty for possession drugs? Are you out of your mind?

      Laws do not equate morality and drug laws in the US are immoral. Grow up and get out of your shell. The drug war has hurt more people than drugs have. Look at Colorado, Washington and Portugal as models of decriminalization success stories.
