As we previously reported, Fetty Wap was arrested by the FBI in New York City while he was at Citi Field in Queens, NY to participate at the Rolling Loud music festival. Fetty along with others were accused of distributing cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine across Long Island and New Jersey. Authorities claim the drugs were obtained in the West Coast and then smuggled to the East Coast in USPS vehicles with secret compartments.
Fetty Wap’s lawyer stated, “We pray that this is all a big misunderstanding. He sees the judge today. Hoping he gets released so we can clear things up expeditiously.”
Meanwhile, Breon Peace, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York said, “As alleged, the defendants transported, distributed and sold more than 100 kilograms of deadly and addictive drugs, including heroin and fentanyl, on Long Island, deliberately contributing to the opioid epidemic that has devastated our communities and taken too many lives.”
According to an indictment, the alleged drug operation ran from about June 2019 to June 2020. At least five of the defendants are accused of obtaining firearms to protect their organization. A search was conducted during the investigation where $1.5 million in money, 16 kilograms of cocaine, two kilograms of heroin, a large number of fentanyl pills, two handguns, a rifle, a pistol, and ammunition were recovered.
