NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Dry cleaning, groceries…you can get almost anything delivered in New York City. That includes cocaine, according to the Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan.

A couple of suspicious looking business cards clipped to a Village Voice newspaper was the tipoff that led to the arrest of two men charged with running a narcotics delivery service that targeted New York University students.


WCBS 880 Irene Cornell gets details from Special Narcotics Prosecutor about the operation.

WCBS 880 Reporter Irene Cornell reports it was a senior court officer visiting his relative attending NYU, who spotted the cards when he picked up a free Village Voice outside a NYU dormitory.

One card featured a livery car and the words, “Purple Rain Up In Smoke”. The other card read “Coca-Cola”.

The court officer handed the cards over to investigators.

After a three-month investigation, Brennan has charged Thomas Zinon and Miguel Guzman with doing a brisk business in delivering cocaine and marijuana to over 200 customers including NYU students.

The business cards advertised their 24-hour drug delivery services, which were widely distributed in the East Village, the Lower East Side and Tribeca.
