26 individuals accused of drug offenses in Rockland County

Drug trafficking can potentially involve many people, from the traffickers to the buyers. New City, New York, residents may be especially interested in the following story about a reported drug trafficking bust that allegedly took place in Rockland County.

Twenty-six individuals are facing criminal drug charges after allegedly being involved in a reported drug trafficking ring that authorities have described as "massive." It is alleged that the drugs sold in Rockland County included heroin and oxycodone. Nine of the accused reside in Rockland County. According to police, drugs were being sold at locations such as movie theaters, ice skating rinks and birthday parties, as well as malls and hotels. The roundup went under the name of "Operation True Blue" and was a combined effort of both federal and state authorities. The individuals allegedly forged prescriptions and, in some cases, are accused of posing as physicians.

Prescription drug abuse knows no bounds. It can affect people across various social strata -- the young, the old, the rich and the poor. This is why police will go to great lengths to try to eradicate such abuse in their jurisdictions. Unfortunately, innocent people can be trapped in a drug sting. When this happens, those individuals may need to take serious action to preserve their integrity. The help of a criminal defense attorney can go a long way toward helping these individuals.

The nine Rockland County residents, along with the other 17 individuals involved in this most recent roundup, may not know what the future brings, but it certainly could hold severe penalties. In these situations, the help of a criminal defense attorney can be a person's greatest asset.
