3 Arrested In Fentanyl Bust On Long Island


GREAT NECK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The sale of $19,000 in drugs to undercover Long Island police officers has led authorities to a massive operation that they say had been supplying the entire East Coast with drug paraphernalia and packaging.

Nassau County police and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents on Wednesday arrested three men in Great Neck who allegedly attempted to sell ketamine and fentanyl to undercover officers.

Authorities raided the men’s storage facility in Queens and found 2.5 million glassine envelopes commonly used to package drugs like cocaine and heroin, Newsday reported.
