According to the indictment documents obtained by MTO News, Fetty and his crew allegedly obtained the drugs on the west coast and used the United States Postal Service and drivers with hidden vehicle compartments to transport the controlled substances across the country to Suffolk County, where they were stored.
"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," stated United States Attorney Breon Peace. "We will continue to work nonstop with our law enforcement partners to keep our neighborhoods safe."
Fetty Wap is described is in the indictment as a kilogram-level redistributor for the trafficking organization.
"The fact that we arrested a chart-topping rap artist and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become," the FBI's Michael Driscoll said.
If convicted, Fetty and the other defendants face a maximum of life imprisonment.
