Nyack, Jan 21 — A dozen people were arrested on drug-related charges in a pre-dawn drug sweep in Rockland County yesterday.
Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe and Orangetown Police Chief Kevin Nulty said 12 people were charged with selling powdered and crack cocaine, marijuana and prescription narcotics to undercover police officers near the Nyack Plaza apartments.
The Thursday arrests followup previous police undercover operations in April 2008 and April 2010. Court-authorized electronic surveillance was used to assist undercover officers who seized powdered and crack cocaine, heroin, marijuana, drug packaging materials, cash, semi-automatic weapons and bulletproof vests during all three operations.
The owner and an employee of 3 Daughters Pizzeria in Pearl River was among those arrested. The charges included selling OxyCodone and marijuana in the restaurant and outside in the parking lot.
