Charged With Crack Conspiracy In The Bronx Fugitive Martin Ross Now Detained On Consent

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 12 – A crack cocaine conspiracy with then only one defendant was alleged in December 2019 to be taking place around 168th Street and Fulton Avenue in The Bronx. Jose L. Irizzary was charged in the Complaint, but it was Destiny Romero and Mikal Tariq Leahr who were arrested. 

  On January 6, Judge Sidney H. Stein of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York held a conference with both of those arrested. He said, "We have somebody that is a fugitive here; Mr. Ross, correct?"   

Assistant US Attorney Jacob R. Fiddelman replied, "That's correct. Mr. Ross has not yet been apprended."   

On February 12 in the SDNY Magistrates Court, with Inner City Press the only media present, Martin Ross was brought in shackled, and left the same way.

Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger confirmed that he was being "remanded on consent," and would appear with the others at a conference before District Judge Stein on March 13. The case is US v. Ross, 19-cr-913 (Stein / Lehrburger).
