Federal authorities say easy come, easy go: ‘The ill-gotten proceeds of the narcotics trafficking conspiracy will be subject to forfeiture.’
However authorities can’t seize the memories. When the crew wanted to kick back, feds say they splashed out lots of cash renting waterfront property in Miami.
‘The heroin epidemic is real. These defendants not only moved large amounts of heroin across the country — they carried firearms to protect their turf and extravagant lifestyle,’ stated NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill.

Authorities say one of the defendants relied on a crew of the violent street gang the Young Gunnerz, also known as the YGs, based in the Bushwick, Brooklyn to provide protection of the illicit business.
O’Neill added ‘New Yorkers are safer with this poison off the street.’
Each of the men faces a minimum of 10 years to life behind bars if convicted.
