Police Nab Sabbath Observant Drug Traffickers

Criminals who observe the Sabbath forgot that Torah also commands not to endanger others, but New York City narcotic agents have now made sure they can’t do so after arresting them on charges of multiple crimes, from illegal possession of narcotics to illegal possession of a weapon, according to CBS news.

The drug ring was comprised of five Brooklyn men who operated out of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

Police reportedly seized around 900 doses of heroin, as well 335 oxycodone pills, cocaine, Xanax, Suboxone and Klonopin from the group during their initial arrest in April. They also found a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition.

The name of the NYPD sting operation that led to the drug bust? Only After Sundown.

Though cavalier about New York’s drug laws, the group was scrupulous about observing the Sabbath. Text messages from members of the gang show them alerting their clientele of their weekly sundown-to-sunset hiatus.

“We are closing 7:30 on the dot and we will reopen Saturday 8:15 so if u need anything you have 45 mins to get what you want,” they wrote in a group text-message to clients.
