An auxiliary cop and a bodybuilder who calls himself the Dominican Hulk have been amongst half a dozen defendants hauled into Manhattan Supreme Courtroom Wednesday for promoting medicine and firearms, authorities stated.
Volunteer Officer Ramon Espinal, of the twenty third Precinct, allegedly arrange a gun sale with bodybuilder José Rodriguez, in line with the town’s particular narcotics prosecutor, who’s dealing with the case.
“Have a Smith & Wesson it’s good high quality,” Espinal allegedly texted Rodriguez on July 24.
The pair agreed to satisfy at Rodriguez’s house in The Bronx later that day, officers stated.
About three weeks later, Rodriguez allegedly bought the firearm to an undercover cop for $500 outdoors a Bronx health club.
The newbie bodybuilder, who has a “Staff Hulk” tattoo on his proper arm, has posted quite a few movies of himself on YouTube lifting weights, together with one captioned, “Gunzzzz All Gunzzzz.”
As he does arm curls, he says into the digital camera, “You need weapons? Everyone needs weapons, however they don’t need to go heavy.”
One other defendant, Jimmy Liu, provided steroids to Rodriguez, who in flip bought him cocaine, authorities declare.
The six defendants allegedly made 19 drug gross sales totaling $30,000 to an undercover cop in the course of the wiretap investigation.
