Albert Ortiz Is Detained In SDNY After 68 Bundles of Heroin Found In His Apartment

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTROOM Exclusive, Sept 20 – In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on September 17, a detention hearing was held by Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang on defendant Albert Ortiz, arrested with 68 bundles of heroin in his apartment.

  Ortiz' lawyer said this was because Ortiz is an addict, who sells to feed his habit. But Judge Wang wondered how bailing Ortiz out to the same apartment would not present a danger.

She ordered that Ortiz be detained pending trial,then issued an order for medical treatment, noting that he was probably in withdrawal. And, as Inner City Press the lone media in the Mag Court saw, that did appear to be the case.

The case is US v. Ortiz, 21-mj-8993 (Wang)
