The NYC police department is one of the busiest police departments in the world, as it must protect a city whose population is the size of some small countries.
Amazingly, its brand of police work and its precinct system (revised and updated by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani himself just prior to 9/11) has allowed the city to enjoy a very low murder rate, taking into account its massive populace.
For instance, in Chicago, where the population is approximately 2.7M (with illegals, probably closer to 6!) the murder rate is much higher than New York City with a population of nearly 10M.
And this is partly because NYC cops do their jobs. As do federal authorities.
Now, feds and NYC police have just made another massive bust that could be one of the largest in their history:
The $30M haul, which amounted to nearly 270 pounds of fentanyl and other drugs, is said to have had the potential to pack 32M lethal doses.
“New York police teamed up with Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) investigators to seize enough fentanyl and other dangerous drugs to kill up to 32 million people–270 pounds worth.
The drug seizure became the largest drug bust in New York City history.
DEA agents joined with the New York Police Department to seize nearly 270 pounds of fentanyl, cocaine, and heroin, the New York Post reported.
“The sheer volume of fentanyl pouring into the city is shocking,” Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan said in a written statement.
“The city is used as a hub of regional distribution for a lethal substance that is taking thousands of lives throughout the Northeast.”
Fentanyl can produce deadly consequences in doses of just two to three milligrams, PIX 11 reported. Officials said the quantities seized could have led to the 32 million lethal doses.
Initially, investigators found 140 pounds of fentanyl in one raid at the Kew Garden apartments.
Additionally, law enforcement officers found 59 pounds of fentanyl that had been mixed with other drugs, such as heroin and cocaine.”
According to the feds, fentanyl continues to be one of the country’s deadliest drugs and a mere 2-3 milligrams has the potential to kill someone.
The drug is said to often be infused in heroin and cocaine.
The feds and law enforcement will continue to have their hands full as long as the Border Wall continues to remain unbuilt.
