29 Arrested in Rockland Drug Raid

An eleven month long investigation by the District Attorney’s office and the Rockland Drug Task Force into the sale of prescription drugs in Rockland County led to the arrest of 29 people. At a press conference on Wednesday District Attorney Thomas Zugibe stated that the dealers arrested were selling drugs including Oxycodone and heroin at the shopping centers throughout the county, such as the Palisades Center and the Shops at Nanuet. During the undercover investigation officers purchased drugs from the dealers, who obtained and and sold nearly $1 million of pills by forging prescriptions and in some cases pretending to be doctors, and also searched the homes of all those involved, discovering forgery equipment, as well as various drugs. The charges include federal charges of conspiracy and state charges of fourth-degree conspiracy, all felonies.
