Suffolk County is on the front lines on the battle against drugs, specifically heroin. Opiate use, which includes heroin and pain killers are far and away the leading cause of overdose in the United States. So much so that 25,000 deaths are attributed directly to opiate medication overdose in 2014 alone. The medical examiners of Suffolk County brings attention to the fact that over the past 4 years heroin overdose deaths have increased rapidly over 300%. On a national level, 15 to 100,000 will experience overdose. In Suffolk County, including Amityville, The Opiate Overdose Prevention Program has become a reality. It trains it’s participants to not only recognize opiate overdose but also to administer Narcan an anti-opiate antagonist which can help save the lives of addicts experiencing Overdose due to opiate use. While this program has and will continue to save lives, it does not eliminate the problem at all, in no way will it help to prevent the flood of drug’s flooding the streets on a daily basis and the crime that comes with it.

Amityville has long been a hub and distribution point for not only local drug sales, but drug rings that operate unchecked on a national basis. In 2013, 20 kilograms of cocaine were seized in California bound for one Juan Funes, 39, an Amityville resident and major player in a national drug ring. Upon seizure the event led to the arrest of 19 people including 6 men filed under the umbrella of major trafficker, a class A felony. Police seized 19 handguns, 6 assault rifles, and more than 400,000 in cash. This drug ring operated in Amityville and Long Island unchecked for years and while the bust does dismantle a major drug distribution line it’s important to remember that a new ring will rise to take its place. With such a vast market, there will always be those looking to exploit it for its inherent massive potential profits.

A perfect example of this replacement can be seen here in the following example. In 2014, authorities busted a ring moving 5 kilos of heroin and two kilos of cocaine around Suffolk County every two weeks. Police used a variety of methods including undercover cops, video surveillance, as well as wire taps to uncover this operation. Elvis Castro, 28, of Amityville was arrested as being a major player in the operations of this drug ring, with a bail set at $5 million. Police seized $200,000 in cash, a dozen firearms, kilos of heroin and cocaine, as well as packaging materials. While the ring operated all over Suffolk County, many of the drug purchases and sales happened directly in Amityville as this ring operated heavily as a local distribution supplier.
