Albanian Drug Ring Busted in Brooklyn, NY

Albanian Drug Ring Busted in Brooklyn, NY

According to the AP, “A ruthless syndicate of ethnic Albanians in the United States, Canada and Europe orchestrated a multimillion drug-dealing scheme spanning a decade, at times hiding shipments of cocaine in luxury cars and using gunplay and other violence to protect its turf, U.S. authorities said Wednesday.”

An indictment unsealed in federal court in Brooklyn charged 37 people with multiple counts of conspiracy to smuggle and distribute massive amounts of high-grade marijuana and cocaine.

A strike force of agents and officers from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the New York Police Department and other agencies arrested most of the defendants Wednesday during raids in the New York City area, New Jersey, Colorado and Florida.

U.S. authorities said one reputed ringleader named in the indictment, Arif “The Bear” Kurti, already is serving time in Albania for heroin trafficking, but has continued to give orders from behind bars using smart phones smuggled into prison.

Court papers filed in New York described the ring as a network of “several inter-related ethnic Albanian family clans” that spanned the globe in pursuit of illicit profits and used violence “for the specific purpose of intimidating, eliminating or retaliating against witnesses and law enforcement agents.”

Earlier this year, three of the defendants gave a “clean-cut” patron of a Bronx bar a vicious beating because they suspected he was an undercover officer who was following them, the court papers said. A dispute over a drug debt prompted two ring members to track down another victim June 4 at a busy Bronx cafe, where they pulled guns, chased him out the door and shot him in both legs, the papers added.

A four-year investigation found that the ring smuggled tens of thousands of kilos of marijuana into the United States from Mexico and Canada by hiding it in tractor trailers carrying legitimate cargo, court papers said. The drugs were stashed in warehouses in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx before being distributed throughout the city and suburbs.

The syndicate also smuggled cocaine inside hidden compartments in luxury sedans shipped by U.S. car dealers to Albania and elsewhere in Europe, authorities said. Last year, one of the ring’s couriers was caught at the airport in Lima, Peru carrying clothing saturated with 24 kilos of liquid cocaine, they added.

Raids in New York on Wednesday resulted in the recovery of 18 firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, authorities said. Previous seizures in Manhattan netted nearly $2 million in alleged drug proceeds.

All that remains now is to charge and arrest US senators, congressmen and presidential candidates who have made hefty profits from Albanian crime. One fears the list would greatly surpass a “several dozens” notch.


  • The Barf Corner

    Former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, an adviser to the Barack Obama campaign and godmother of chief Obama foreign policy adviser Dr. Susan Rice, carried on an affair with Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci in a flagrant abuse of her office. WMR has received further confirmation from well-placed sources in Croatia, Serbia, and Kosovo that Albright had Thaci at her virtual beck and call for sexual encounters. Thaci was in his late 20s and early 30s when he was having the affair with Albright, who was in her sixties at the time.

    Have you read the latest news about the cutest squirrel in the world jumping in front of a young couple’s camera on vacation? Did you know that Michael Jackson’s brain wasn’t buried with the rest of his remains?

  • Bernard Kouchner, Corrupt Lackey

    France’s current Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner is accused of bigotry, corruption and robbing the African countries for personal gain, while the Serbs from Kosovo and Metohija province charge him with far more grievous crimes — condoning ferocious pogroms of Kosovo Serbs and involvement in the atrocious harvesting of vital organs from kidnapped Serbs for sale, by the Albanian terrorists and mafia.

    Far from petering out after the Friday release of three BND agents who were arrested on bogus charges by the Albanian separatists in Pristina on November 19th, German shock and outrage by the Kosovo Albanian arrogance appears to have reached a point of boiling over. According to the Welt am Sonntag, German government has since Friday been seriously considering freezing aid it has already promised to the fake state which it helped form on the territory of Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija.

    In the past two years in United States we had four Yugoslavian terrorists who wanted to “kill as many American soldiers as possible”, a coldblooded Yugoslavian murderer who shot a man in the face, killing him in broad daylight in the midst of New York, a Bosnian mass murderer who gunned down random mall shoppers, two naturalized Americans who wanted to wage violent jihad around the world, and a Bosnian beauty — all belonging to none of the world’s known nations, and mostly coming from a nonexistent country.

    Marko Nicović, former chief of Belgrade Police, argues that trafficking narcotics and keeping Kosovo province crime zone out of the reach of law is the main reason for Priština rebellion against the European Union. He has many more arguments for this claim after returning from the gathering of International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in San Diego.

    - With her book “The Hunt: Me and War Criminals”, where she speaks about the fact that the Serbs were taken to death camps in Albania, Carla Del Ponte is only trying to clean her dirty conscience, to take the blame off herself and downplay the illegalities she’s been governed with in her work, – Maria Lina Veca, Italian author, reporter, filmmaker and the President of the humanitarian organization RinascereOnlus said in an interview to the Kosovo Serb magazine Hvosno.

  1. Good to have de-construct back.

    There was a court case in Russia recently were an Israeli was sentenced to 18 years involved in trafficking hundreds of Russian women from 1999-2007 that involved Albanian sex traffickers.

    “Aside from Yanai, 83 people were arrested across Europe, 14 of them in Russia. The network is suspected to have produced tens of millions of dollars in profits for its operators, and some of the women trafficked may have been murdered by the Albanian mafia.”

    “The network then recruited women with promises of legitimate work as dancers or waitresses. The women paid 3 to 5 thousand Euros, and received the passports stolen earlier with their pictures. In some cases, fake stamps were used.

    “Once they got abroad, the women would end up in real slavery,” Danilov said. “Sexual slavery. They didn’t get any money, their passports were usually taken and there was no way home. The Albanian pimps were particularly cruel, beating them bloody for any attempted escape. From what we’ve heard they may have killed at least one woman.”


    I thought you would have posted something about Mladic?

    This is a great website I found referencing mainstream news sources focusing on British connections to Islamic terrorism and oil which includes the Balkans.

    This is just one page on the section about the Balkans not the whole website which includes Azerbaijan, Iraq, Libya and Chechnya.


  2. And good to have you with us again, Jack.

    Great stuff, as always, and interesting new sources. Will check it out! thanks for sharing

    P.S. Mladić’s arrest analysis up front, under Commentary :)
