QUEENS – Three New York City men stand accused running a drug ring in Queens after a massive bust from local law enforcement uncovered heroin, cocaine and cash, the Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said.

Two Queens men — Darren “Bizzo” Jordan, 44, and Eric “JD Flow” Weatherspoon, 56,— and Bronx resident Dexter “JD Prez” Joseph, 49, face a slew of criminal charges after police raided a Far Rockaway home on Nov. 16, prosecutors said.

“Illicit drugs, and the clear danger they help fuel, have no place in our communities,” said Katz in a statement. “My Office will work with the utmost precision to remove this poison from our streets and hold accountable those who profit from the drug trade

Investigators found 9.5 kilos of cocaine, 216 pounds of marijuana, 10 grams of heroin, a loaded Ruger .40 caliber handgun and a loaded MP Shield 9MM handgun during Wednesday’s bust, prosecutors said.

Jordan, Joseph, and Weatherspoon are scheduled to return to court on Nov. 21. Jordan faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted, Joseph faces up to 30 years in prison and Weatherspoon faces up to 20 years in prison, prosecutors said.

The raid followed a year-long investigation conducted by the NYPD, said Commissioner Keechant Sewell.

“The NYPD and our law enforcement partners work tirelessly to rid New York City of illegal drugs and prevent the violence so often associated with the illicit narcotics trade,” Sewell said.

“This case underscores our work to arrest and hold fully accountable anyone who seeks to profit from criminality.”
