Law enforcement officials target BK drug trafficking
Federal and state law enforcement officials announced charges today against nearly 100 New Yorkers accused of prescription drug trafficking. Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes unsealed a 50-count indictment against five men accused of running a drug ring centered in Dyker Heights and Bay Ridge. Hynes says the men sold oxycodone, marijuana and cocaine. In an independent case, U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch announced the settlement of a civil action suit against a Gravesend pharmacy owner. She says Mark Khaskelzon agreed to pay $105,000 after forging 88 oxycodone prescriptions.
