Heroin, Cocaine Ring Dismantled

32 people, including a Jamestown man, have been charged with running a drug ring that brought heroin and cocaine into western New York.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico announced this afternoon that a 13-month investigation known as “Operation Crazy Train” dismantled the operation.

The suspects were arrested during a series of overnight raids. Bryan Moore is the Jamestown man who was arrested.

Schneiderman says over the course of the investigation authorities seized nearly $1 million worth of heroin, several hundred thousand dollars’ worth of cocaine and tens of thousands of dollars in cash.
