"The result of our efforts yielded over 460 pounds of pure cocaine. That's 210 kilos. This has an estimated street value of $40,000,000," said Rensselaer County DA Trish DeAnglis.
The amount is daunting, $40,000,000 worth of cocaine recovered in Suffolk County along with $5,000,000 in cash, nine guns, and small amounts of other drugs. Police said their discovery began in Troy.
"This is the biggest drug bust I can recall in our history, my history, here in the Troy Police Department," said Troy Police Chief Nicholas Kaiser.
Troy police said it all began when they arrested two low level drug dealers this summer, and got them to talk.
"An investigation was conducted. The main concern was who was their source of supply," said Lt. Steven James.
The two arrests sparked a 9 month investigation into an international drug ring that was trafficking cocaine from Mexico, across the country, and eventually to a distribution point in Suffolk County, which police said was organized by 38 year old, Norman Goode, a Suffolk County Corrections Officer.
"We've learned that Mr. Goode was the most major drug dealer to our city of Troy. Supplying what we believe to be the most significant dealers in Rensselaer County," said DeAnglis.
Goode, and 10 others, six of them from the Capital Region, have been federally indicted.
"The reason is, quite frankly, because we can get a bigger bang for our buck in the Federal Courts. They are facing more time," said DeAnglis.
Specifically, 20 years to life in prison for their actions. The six Capital District suspects will be in federal court next Monday. Authorities also said the investigation is still open, and there could be more arrests in the near future.

Wow, "pure"? That's interesting.. I wonder if someone actually tested the purity, or if this is just some kind of assumption. Being 100% pure without traces of anything else sounds almost impossible. I always thought even at the highest levels, it's usually professionally cut at least.
