The arrests occurred when officers from the police department’s narcotics enforcement unit and uniformed patrols with members of the St. Lawrence County Drug Task Force, consisting of the county sheriff’s office and K-9 Unit, and Gouverneur Police Department executed a search warrant at the federal housing project after an investigation of reports of drug traffic and crack cocaine sales at the apartment.

Officers found in the apartment a quantity of prepackaged bags of crack cocaine, cash, a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

A total of fifty, prepackaged bags of crack cocaine with a street value of $5,000 were found.

None of the suspects are residents of Ogdensburg.

Daniel Mousaw said in a prepared statement. “This organization is based out of the Buffalo area. We continue to track this organization and through a series of arrests of organization members are working to eradicate their presence here in our community.”
