Amagansett, New York

New York City has long been a focal point in the drug trafficking world. With its major ports and airports, drugs flood into the city and in to the surrounding cities and towns, such as Amagansett. Which in turn makes it all too easy for anyone looking for them to find.

Opiate use, including heroin and pain medication are the leading cause of overdose in the United States, 25,000 deaths are attributed to prescription drugs alone in 2014. Dr. Michael Lehrer, the chief toxicologist of the Medical Examiner’s office notes that heroin-related deaths in Suffolk County over the past four years have increased by a staggering 300 percent. These numbers not only point out that this has been an ongoing struggle but is only becoming worse. This trend is also visible when you look at national numbers as well, 15 to every 100,000 experience an overdose. In Suffolk and the surrounding counties that problem has become so prevalent that residents now are able to obtain Narcan, an anti-opiate drug that can help prevent overdose. Community bulletins are filled with Narcan training classes and parents across the county are arming themselves for the worst. While this can help lessen the total amount of overdose deaths, it does not solve the problem entirely there are still drug dealers and drug related crime to deal with.

Misdemeanor crime and theft are commonplace amongst those seeking their fix. Home invasion, stolen vehicles, and property theft go hand in hand with drug abuse. Ronald King, 61, was arrested in Amagansett after a routine traffic stop. Police upon suspicion searched his vehicle after he displayed signals of being under the influence, they located a pipe with a partially burnt white substance in it. He was arrested for seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs.

Being in such close proximity to the New York City, drug traffickers often transport drugs in and out of the city to the surrounding counties. Such was the case when 9 men were arrested in a drug ring selling a particular brand of Heroin named “Hollywood,” the dealers would collect large amounts of heroin called “sleeves” from Harlem, then bring the drugs back into Suffolk county where they could charge a premium for the high quality Heroin into a less saturated market. After a lengthy investigation and undercover operation this drug ring was shut down for good however, when one supplier disappears another will rise to take its place and with such a high demand in Suffolk County and Amagansett it’s only a matter of time before another ring similar to this will reveal itself.

Prescription pills are also a major problem in Amagansett as well. Doctors operating with less than perfect intentions write prescriptions for highly addictive painkillers to take advantage of the guaranteed profits involved in the lucrative drug trade. Michael Chait, 46, a doctor operating out of Amagansett was arrested for writing prescriptions for OxyContin, synthetic morphine and Dilaudid a highly addictive and powerful opiate medication. Buyers would travel for miles to take advantage of the easily obtainable medication. The doctor faces numerous conspiracy charges, and has since lost his license for medical practice. This sort of case just goes to show that the problem has infiltrated every level of society and the community, leaving everyone suspect to feel the effects of the drug market.

Amagansett is one of hundreds of communities nationwide that is feeling the negative effects of drug trade and drug addiction. The best way to combat this issue is to properly inform and educate residents in regards to drug and alcohol treatment.
