Fifteen people were arrested yesterday as part of an alleged drug trafficking ring in Queen Village, federal authorities said.
The ring was allegedly based in the Courtyard Apartments-Riverview near Fourth Street and Washington Avenue, and operated on Christian Street between Fifth and Seventh. From March 2009 and Aug. 2011, authorities claim the group distributed more than 500 grams of cocaine and 280 grams of crack cocaine, including purchases made by informants and undercover narcotics officers.
Mayoshi Sanders, 36, has been charged as the ringleader, and Alfred Jenkins, 43, as Sanders’ cocaine supplier.
According to authorities, Sanders and his accomplices used several apartments in the public housing complex to mix and store their supply, which also included heroin, marijuana, Oxycodone, and Alprozalam.
