Two Brooklyn men arrested in $10M illegal marijuana operation

Police recovered about 400 pounds of marijuana, mushrooms, liquid PCP and much more.

One large drug bust led authorities to an even bigger one earlier this week in connection to an illegal marijuana operation in Brooklyn that nets $10 million per year.


On March Wednesday, investigators saw two men picking up a container from ABF Freight, located at 414 Maspeth Ave., according to authorities. The duo then loaded the container into a truck and drove it to 234 Java St.


Upon further investigation, police found that the vehicle contained about 300 pounds of marijuana, cops said.

A search warrant was obtained for 234 Java St. on Thursday, where police found about 100 pounds of marijuana, 1,100 packed containers of retail-ready marijuana, mushrooms, liquid THC, liquid PCP and liquid HGH — all totaling a street value of about $2.5 million, according to police.

Authorities say they also found about $100,000 in cash and a .22-caliber North American Arms revolver.

Members of the NYPD’s Criminal Enterprise Investigations Unit and Homeland Security arrested 36-year-old Philip Feng and 35-year-old Victor Bae and charged each of them with criminal sale of marijuana, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of marijuana, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.
