Cortland Cocaine Pipeline Busted

Wavebreak Media

Dozens of people face charges as law enforcement officials announced indictments following an investigation into upstate drug distribution networks.

Authorities say cocaine was moved from the New York City and Buffalo areas to be sold in Cortland, Syracuse and Watertown.

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said more than ten kilograms of cocaine was seized in a series of raids conducted early this morning.

Several agencies were involved in a nine-month investigation. Police utilized hundreds of hours of wiretaps over that time.

The New York State Police, Cortland City Police, Cortland County Sheriff’s Department and SUNY Cortland Police were among the agencies that cooperated in the operation.

Fourteen of the 39 people named in three indictments are reported to be Cortland residents. Several others are from Syracuse.

Those named in the indictments unsealed in Cortland County Court today face a range of drug-related counts, including operating as a major trafficker.
