Posted November 19th, 2013

“Operation Say No More” Identified Two Brothers As Large-Scale Suppliers Of Crack And Powered Cocaine In New York And New Jersey

FROM DA’S OFFICE

Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe today announced the indictment of 22 individuals on drug-related charges following a six-month undercover investigation targeting a robust network of narcotics dealers distributing crack and powdered cocaine in sections of Rockland and Bergen counties. Twenty-one of the indicted individuals are in custody and one is presently being sought.

The defendants – who range in age from 20 to 61 and include two brothers – are charged with selling cocaine and other controlled substances to undercover police officers on separate occasions in the Hillburn section of Ramapo and the Stag Hill section of Mahwah, New Jersey.

District Attorney Zugibe said, “This initiative is another step in our ongoing campaign to stop drug-dealing and drug-based violence in our neighborhoods. The arrests should serve as a warning to others that the law enforcement community is committed to continue to employ aggressive and innovative tactics to track down and prosecute dealers and other dangerous criminals who seek to terrorize our communities.”

Among those arrested are brothers Elam Yisrael (DOB 08/09/75) of 5 Cottonwood Street, Jersey City, New Jersey and Enaim Yisrael (DOB 06/29/76) of 522 West 158th Street, Apartment # 4, New York, New York, alleged to have been the main suppliers to four separate cocaine distribution gangs in Rockland County.

Also arrested was Peter Bowens (DOB 02/12/89) of 125 Sixth Street, Hillburn, New York. Through the use of court-authorized eavesdropping warrants and other investigative resources, it was learned that Bowens was the alleged main cocaine distributor in the Village of Hillburn.

The investigation, known as “Operation Say No More,” commenced in May, 2013 when the Rockland County Drug Task Force received intelligence from the Town of Ramapo Police Department Street Crime Unit regarding street-level cocaine dealing. Plain-clothes detectives began conducting undercover buys and “buyer beware” operations, which included extensive physical surveillance, court-authorized eavesdropping and search warrants.

Information was developed and conversations were intercepted discussing street locations for the deliveries of cocaine in Hillburn and Mahwah. Drug suppliers and runners were identified by undercover detectives and by uniformed officers during routine patrols.

The probe culminated with a 66-count indictment handed up by the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office.

The defendants are variously charged with numerous counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, a class “B” Felony and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, a class “B” Felony, each punishable by up to nine years in prison.

Included in “Operation Say No More” were the Town of Ramapo Police Department Uniform Patrol and Street Crime Unit, the Mahwah Police Department Uniform Patrol, the Town of Haverstraw Police Department, the Town of Clarkstown Police Department Street Crime Unit and K-9 Unit, the Town of Orangetown Police Department, the Spring Valley Police Department, Village of Suffern Police Department, the New York Drug Enforcement Task Force, and the New York State Police Troop F – Haverstraw K-9 Unit.

Several of the individuals have extensive prior criminal histories for drug selling, robbery, assault, burglary, parole violation, weapons possession and resisting arrest.
