Reena Rose Sibayan/The Jersey Journal…From left, Jose Delorbe, Alejandro Valdez and Jorge Guerra appear at Central Judicial Processing court in Jersey City videolink from Hudson County jail in Kearny last week. The three men and two others were charged in a $1 million heroin bust. Officials said that federal authorities will be handling the prosecution of five men arrested in a $1 million heroin raid in West New York, as reported by The Jersey Journal. Alejandro Valdez, 34, of Washington Street in West New York, along with Victor Arias 29, Christian Colon, 23, Jorge Guerra, 31, and Jose Delorbe, 25, all of New York City, made their first appearance on the federal charges yesterday in District Court in Newark, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. In state court, the defendants would have faced a maximum sentence of 20 years if convicted, whereas in federal court they can face up to life, officials said. An anonymous tip led police to the two-family house on Washington Street near 62nd Street in January where investigators found the heroin and a marijuana farm. The bust was the biggest in the history of West New York for any drug, said West New York Police Director Al Bringa. It was also one of the biggest ever in Hudson County.

CORNERED: The man in the jacket, and those to his immediate left and right, are alleged members of a drug ring caught in this Google pic.Earth to drug dealers — Google is watching! Three brazen heroin dealers were captured in Google Street View images working their favorite Brooklyn NY drug corner, where they peddled their product to hipsters and other dope fiends, law-enforcement sources said.

New York City is the primary distribution center for South American heroin destined for distribution in New York and other states. DTOs and criminal groups also use New York as a distribution center for smaller quantities of Southeast and Southwest Asian heroin, brokering deals in the city and distributing Asian heroin throughout the state and New Jersey as well as the New England, Great Lakes, and Southeast regions. Federal, state, and local law enforcement officials in at least 19 states and the District of Columbia that responded to the NDIC National Drug Threat Survey reported that New York was a supply area for heroin available in their jurisdictions. Officials reporting New York City as a supply area for heroin included those in Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; Charlottesville, Virginia; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and New Orleans, Louisiana.
