Men Charged After Wire Tap of Bronx Stash House Are Detained in SDNY Mag Court

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

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, Oct 14 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 13, three detention or bond proceedings were held by Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the Mag Court.

  Defendant Andy Mercado, arrested with two others after a month's wire-tapping and observation of a drug stash house on Loring Place South in The Bronx, asked to be released on bond. His lawyer said the "Andy" on the wire taps might not be him. But his passport was found in the drug filled room.

  He was detained, as were Nelson Olivo and lead / named defendant Joel Cosme Figueroa, who the AUSA linked to fake oxy pills being left for a customer called "stupid chick."

The overall case is US v. Cosme Figueroa, et al., 22-mj-8235 (Parker)
