The Clarkstown Detective Bureau executed a joint law enforcement operation with the New York City Police Department in the month of September that netted over 15 kilos of controlled substances and the arrest of a 47 year old Massachusetts man.
The Clarkstown Police Street Crime Unit worked in conjunction with the NYPD Intel Unit and Queens Major Case Squad on a large scale narcotics trafficking investigation. Acting on credible information the Street Crime Officers conducted a traffic stop of a tractor trailer in West Nyack.
Upon stopping the tractor trailer, officers were assisted by a Clarsktown Police K-9 unit to search the truck. Officers discovered the following items:
1 Kilogram Fentanyl
1 Kilogram Heroin
13 Kilograms cocaine
1,551 imitation Oxycodone pills containing Fentanyl
The thirty five pounds of illegal narcotics which were seized have an estimated street value of $2.4 million. Fentany is 100 times more powerful than morphine and in its unadulterated form, one kilogram has the potential to fatally overdose 500,000 individuals.
The driver of the truck, Alexis Victorero, 47, of Milford, Massachusetts was taken into custody and transported to police headquarters for processing. He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance 1st (felony). Victorero was indicted by a Rockland County Grand Jury for 3 counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance 1st (felony) and criminal possession of a controlled substance 3rd (felony).
