The second complaint states that on Sept. 6, 2017, Singh allegedly met with sold a buyer cocaine in exchange for cash. It is alleged that on Sept. 26, 2017, Singh met sold the same buyer a bag of cocaine for $4,000 and a stolen red Honda CBR motorcycle for $2,700.
“The defendant in this case is charged with dealing drugs as well as stolen motorcycles,” said District Attorney Richard A. Brown. “As a result of a long-term investigation by the New York City Police Department’s Auto Crime Division and my office’s Organized Crime and Rackets Bureau, this individual is now out of business and facing a lengthy term of incarceration for these alleged crimes. This case should serve as a warning to drug dealers and anyone else who barters in stolen goods that law enforcement is coming for you.”
