DEA says Bronx heroin dealers sold brands named for coronavirus, Kobe Bryant's "Black Mamba"

THE BRONX — In a sick sign of the times, the Special Agent in Charge of New York’s Drug Enforcement Administration said heroin traffickers in the Bronx were stamping some of their product with the brand name "coronavirus," as well as using the nickname of the late basketball player, Kobe Bryant.

Ray Donovan of the DEA announced the results of a long-term investigation that did surveillance on one alleged operation located at 2333 Loring Place North, Apartment 3.

“Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we arrested six drug traffickers who aptly branded their product ‘coronavirus,’” Donovan said.

He noted that drug traffickers often brand their deadly narcotics with catchy names to attract business.


Among 120,000 glassine doses of heroin/fentanyl allegedly seized, the DEA said some were stamped with the brand 24 Black Mamba, an apparent reference to the nickname and jersey number for the late basketball icon Kobe Bryant, who was killed with his daughter in a helicopter crash in January.

Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan said more than a million dollars of product was taken off the street.

    1. Yeah right!

      Any drugs sold anywhere in North America and you can bet that 98% of the time Mexicans are behind it since it’s their land and turf and they’re the first ones to get their cut, quit posting bullshit!

    3. Dominicans don’t not control shit!
      They have to pay the Mexicans a cut in the Northeast in order to operate.

    4. Lol dominicans dont even control their country. Colombians cartels and puerto rican drug traffickers live like kings in dr and are able to run their business from over there.

    11. Heroin in the North East doesn’t come from Mexico. If it did, it would all be black tar heroin, not heroin #4. The mystery’s of that East Coast Powder still makes me wonder 🤷‍♂️.

      It don’t matter where it comes from Mexicans run the drug game and they will not let others get involved unless they get their cut first those are straight up 💯 facts!

    13. of course it comes from mexico, fuck you mean?? Mexico makes number 4 also- along with columbia

    14. 10:52 & 3:07 - I didnt say they dont run the drug game. I said Heroin #4 doesn't come from Mexico, and it doesnt. If it did you'd find it all over the USA and you dont. Pretty much everything West of Chicago is all Black Tar, everything East is number #4. You can't tell me there isn't something weird going on with that. There has to be some kind of pack between the Mexicans and someone(*cough* CIA *cough*) that leaves H game in the Eastern United States to some different players, with the Mexican's getting some kind of cut off that. Yes, Columbia makes number #4, but the majority of #3 and #4 comes from Afghanistan. Hell, Afghanistan went from producing less then 5% of the worlds Heroin supply pre US invasion to roughly 92% of the worlds Heroin supply post US invasion. Im not a huge conspiracy theorist, but there is definitely something fishy going on with it.

    2. Dominicans controll a lot of wholesale to street sale distribution as they have an entrenched community and network from being aligned with the Colombians for so long. But they still get their stuff from the Mexicans primarily now a days of course as The DR is not a producer nation. The Mexicans usually like to deal in bulk and therefore need a supply chain for distribution. So, everyone is right and wrong. The mexicAns control the product and often set price and Dominicans often have a lot more control on the market to buyers.

    3. Haha this is funny the Mexicans wouldnt have shit if it werent for the Chineese who first brought it (opio) over long ago and now they have to get their chemicals to make Heroin and fentnyl as well as any knowledge on how to make the shit ! If it weren't for the Chineese the only thing Mexico would be producing is low grade Marijuana put that in your pipe and smoke it ! The Chineese are the original merchants of death look at em now with the fentnyl and the covid 19 . BTW your opinions mean nothing ! Have at it !

  9. The most important fact I get from this excellent article is that heroin/fentanyl is still in abundant quantities. Sadly, whatever brand you chose to get high you play Russian Roulette with your life. I've now been an ex-heroin junkie for 46 years. I was 18 when I finally came to the realization that I was close to death. During my 9 months of severe addiction to China White from the Golden Triangle...it wouldn't have mattered what my "friendly" dealer called it. What I've seen throughout my years since,working with teenagers who are addicted and usually having mental health issues,is we all end up in Hell on Earth. As everyone knows it's a freaking miracle if you don't end up dead or in prison. I understand somewhat the fascination with names on poison,as many have posted about. There is really a bigger sadder picture here. Of course it's just me thinking out loud. Grazie again for getting and sharing this important post. Be safe.Peace.
