Cash, weapons, Lamborghini seized in major drug bust in Queens, Brooklyn

LONG ISLAND CITY, Queens (WABC) -- Four suspects were arrested in Queens and Brooklyn overnight Wednesday in what is being described as a major drug bust.

The bust was the result of a long-running investigation that began with two overdose deaths involving fentanyl-laced heroin -- one in Bay Ridge in 2016 and one in Kew Gardens in May of 2017.

The alleged ringleader was identified as 35-year-old Dionne Sharrow (AKA "Slay"), who was arrested at his apartment in a luxury high-rise on 51st Avenue in Long Island City. Among the property seized there was a loaded firearm, approximately $500,000 in cash and a Lamborghini parked in the building's garage.

"It's just terrible, it's just a tragedy," New York City Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan said. "Probably millions of little glassine envelopes of heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl, which is killing the people in this city."
