Copiague has seen a rise in the use of drugs far more potent and dangerous than have been seen before. This trend has been rising nationwide, and especially quickly in Long Island and Suffolk County. Death by drug overdose has risen by almost 300% in the last three years in the county, and arrests for heroin have risen more than 150%. The potency of heroin has increased by 60% since 1990, with cocaine and methamphetamine following suit. The ongoing reality is that the amount of money that can be made manufacturing and dealing drugs is drawing in so many. This is often seen in many aspects of the community.

A man and his son were among three people arrested for drug possession during a raid at a Copiague home Thursday morning, Suffolk police said. More than 100 packs of heroin, a small amount of cocaine and several thousand dollars in cash were seized at 6:35 a.m. Thursday by First Precinct police and detectives executing a search warrant.
Two brothers were arrested by Suffolk County police on a routine traffic stop on route 27. The driver was found to be intoxicated and the vehicle was searched. Crack cocaine and heroin were found in several secret custom built compartments throughout the car. The time and ingenuity that went into creating spaces just to store drugs is not a new story. The brothers were arrested for possession with intent to distribute and are now awaiting trial.
A 7 1/2-month pregnant nurse named Maria Rodriguez, Figueroas Deli owner Jesus Sime and Michael Rosati, a contractor and Copiague Little League coach for 15 years have all been indicted in what police are calling a major cocaine operation on Long Island. Prosecutors say the drug ring is based in California and claim the defendants would drive to both California and Florida to pick up large amounts of cocaine and bring it back to the Island. Police seized cash, coke and guns during the bust, including from the home of Juan Santana, a so-called “major trafficker.” Prosecutors said in court today that they have about three months of wiretaps and video proving some of the defendants were in communication with each other.
The cost of selling drugs is prison, while the cost of using them is much higher. Emergency Medical Technician Ron Tappen responded to an ambulance call at 3:20 p.m. and upon arrival at a local parking lot he found an unresponsive man. Tappen noted that the man was breathing only four times per minute and had a hypodermic needle lying next to him. Tappen administered intranasal Narcan, the brand name for the drug nalaxone, used to treat overdose of opiates. The man, who stated that he had shot up heroin, was immediately transported to Good Samaritan Hospital. Many are not so fortunate. Police and ambulances are equipping a record number of their personnel with medicines such as these. If emergency responders are delayed just a few minutes, or never called at all, the end is far more tragic.
