Bay Shore Home Linked to $5M NYC Heroin Ring Bust, Feds Say

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Federal authorities Thursday raided a Bay Shore home that officials said was tied to a New York City drug bust that prompted five arrests and the seizure of $5 million worth of heroin.Besides Long Island, the alleged drug trafficking ring was found to have ties to Washington Heights, the Bronx and upstate Sullivan County, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.“Sadly, an untimely death from a heroin overdose triggered this investigation, but as a result our collaborative efforts prevented more than a million bags of heroin from hitting the streets,” said Bridget Brennan, New York City’s special narcotics prosecutor.Authorities identified the alleged ringleader as Orlando Rosario-Concepcion, who was arrested along with the four others rounded up following the eight-month investigation. They were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and other counts.Twelve kilos of heroin was seized along with $115,000 in cash and two guns, the DEA said.Investigators executing the search warrants said they caught Rosario-Concepcion and the others in the process of filling thousands of glassine envelopes, while other drug paraphernalia, such as scales, grinders and the drug in its loose powdered form was confiscated.The house on LI was found to have $15,000 in cash, 5,000 glassine bags of heroin and a rifle.last_img read more

Anti-union group hurts all workers

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe Uniform Law Commission estimates that 150,000 to 200,000 employees are wrongfully discharged each year as a result of being employed at will without legally protected rights that unions demand for their members. The charge for this protection, called dues, is a tiny fraction of a penny on the dollar compared to a wrongful discharge.Mark Janus, the plaintiff in the case Janus v. AFSCME, does not feel he should be required to pay union dues, hence the suit against his union, the American Federation of state, county, and municipal employees.Did you know that Mr. Janus’s legal fees are being paid in part by the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, Inc. (NRTW). The NRTW’s mission, according to its website, is to “eliminate union power through strategic litigation, public information and education programs.”On the same website, they state that they do not defend workers who feel they have been victimized by employment at will. So the question to be asked of NRTW is, “What happens when unions lose power, leaving us all at-will employees without legally protected rights?”Frank ColemanScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady teens accused of Scotia auto theft, chase; Ended in Clifton Park crash, Saratoga Sheriff…EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

China virus spread continues to hit Indonesia’s tourist sector

first_imgTransportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said on Friday that Bali, North Sulawesi and Riau Islands had been affected as they were the gates to several popular destinations for Chinese tourists, such as Bunaken and Bintan.  To ease the tourist industry’s burden, the government is encouraging domestic tourists to visit such destinations. “I have asked Indonesian carriers to give special prices or discounts to those destinations,” said Budi Karya. Previously, the ministry planned to provide additional international flight slots to Bali from East Asia and Middle East countries to boost foreign arrivals to Bali.  Topics : The country’s tourist sector has taken a hit amid the novel coronavirus outbreak in China that has spread to other countries, as more trip and hotel booking cancellations have been reported following travel bans on tourists to and from China. Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) chairman Hariyadi Sukamdani said on Friday that more than 40,000 hotel bookings in Bali had been canceled since the outbreak.”This coronavirus has overwhelmed us, especially the tourist sector in Bali where more than 40,000 room bookings were canceled and 20,000 people annulled their visits,” said Hariyadi. “Import and export activities, including the export of live fish, has also been disrupted.” center_img “We should be more vigilant. We did not imagine that the impact of the coronavirus outbreak would be greater than that of SARS [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome],” he said.The SARS epidemic, which also started in China, killed around 800 people worldwide in 2002-2003. The 2019-nCoV virus, linked to a wet market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, has infected more than 40,100 people since it was first reported early this year with a death toll of around 900 as of Sunday.Hariyadi called on stakeholders to work hand-in-hand to tackle the issue as the outbreak also occurred during the low season. “If this continues, I think it could turn into a serious matter,” he said. last_img read more
