Four Arrests Made In Buffalo - California Drug Trafficking Ring

A massive drug trafficking ring that stretched from Buffalo to California has led to the arrest of four people. The U.S. Attorney’s office for the Western District of NY says David Washington, Eleazar Martinez Medina, David Burgin and Rodney Pierce are all facing federal drug charges.

Burgin is also charged with maintaining a drug involved premises and possession of firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking crimes.

Federal prosecutors say the trafficking ring involved cocaine, crack cocaine, and fentanyl being transported to the Buffalo area for distribution and sale.

As part of their investigation authorities say they executed search warrants at a dozen homes and seized six firearms, ammunition, marijuana, over 7 ½ kilos of suspected cocaine and crack cocaine, over 2 kilograms of fentanyl, and over 750 thousand dollars in cash.
