Uniondale Man Charged in Alleged Heroin Ring

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York An accused drug dealer from Uniondale is among 13 suspects that authorities said were busted for their alleged ties to a New York City-based heroin trafficking ring stretching as far as Pennsylvania.Kenneth Parris, 42, was indicted on multiple counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. Of the 179 charges in the indictment, the top counts went to alleged kingpin Brian Bacon, 52, of the Bronx, who called himself “The Prime Minister.” Bacon was charged with operating as a major trafficker.“For the third time in as many weeks, we have dismantled a large heroin ring that allegedly crossed county and state lines, stretching from Pittsburgh to Long Island,” said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.Prosecutors said Parris was one of Bacon’s main resellers, with others based in the city and upstate New York. Only one of Bacon’s two suppliers have been identified, authorities said. The alleged Pittsburgh-based dealer traveled to Manhattan by bus, according to investigators.The 10-month investigation, which was dubbed “Operation Iron Horse,” included covert physical surveillance and hundreds of hours of wiretaps, authorities said.last_img read more

Britain reviews distancing rule for next stage of easing lockdown

first_imgJohnson’s Conservative Party government, which says it has followed scientific advice in its handling of the pandemic, faces the difficult balancing act of reviving the economy without allowing a second wave of cases.”We’ll work closely with the scientists at all times and make the right decision on the basis of safety, health and stopping the disease,” Johnson said.The scale of Britain’s slump was laid bare by data last week which showed output shrank by 25% over March and April.As COVID-19 in the population fell to 1 in 1,600 or lower, the chances of catching the disease from an encounter of less than two meters had diminished, Johnson added. “You start to build some more margin for maneuver,” he said. “So we’ll be keeping it under review for July 4th.”Finance Minister Rishi Sunak earlier told Sky News the review would involve economists as well as scientists so it could be looked at “in the round”.Lowering the distance people have to maintain from one another could provide an immediate benefit for badly-hit English pubs, with Sunak saying three quarters could reopen, rather than about one third with a two-meter rule.Airlines have also warned of huge job losses because of the quarantine policy Britain introduced last week.Sunak said the government could make changes to the 14-day quarantine for people coming into the country, such as the introduction of travel corridors with specific countries.”The transport secretary is actively looking at options as we continue to make progress against the virus. We might be able to do more here as well,” Sunak said.Asked if he might cut value-added tax to spur spending, Sunak said it was something Britain had done previously.”Before we have that conversation we need to actually reopen those sectors. There’s no point in cutting VAT on a sector that is actually closed,” he said. Topics :center_img Britain is reviewing its two-meter social distancing rule ahead of the next stage of lockdown easing planned for July 4, when bars, restaurants and hairdressers could reopen in England, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Sunday.Progress in tackling the coronavirus pandemic had created “room for maneuver” on the rule, which many employers have said will make it harder to get back up to speed, Johnson said at an east London shopping center preparing to reopen next week.Britain has reported the third highest number of coronavirus deaths after the United States and Brazil, something critics of the government say reflects its response to the crisis.last_img read more
