Clarkstown Police Help Bust Alleged Drug Trafficker after Nabbing Truck Driver with $2.4 Million in Narcotics

Three men have been arrested and charged with taking part in a massive national illegal narcotics ring after one of them was recently busted in West Nyack with an estimated 2.4 million dollars’ worth of drugs. Acting Queens District Attorney John Ryan and New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill say 49 year-old Giovanny Arias of White Plains ran a complex network of truckers that would bring in carfentanil, a substance 100 times more deadly than fentanyl, and other drugs from southern California. Clarkstown Police Detective Peter Walker says one of Arias’ truck drivers was nabbed in West Nyack back in September…

The investigation began in May 2018, and has since recovered 6 firearms, 68 pounds of cocaine, 50 pounds of fentanyl, heroin, Ketamine and Tramadol. Arias and his co-defendants face a 23-count indictment stemming following his arrest last month. If convicted, Arias faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
