Gang Member Commuting from The Bronx to the Lower East Side to Sell Crack Is Detained

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 18 – Muhammad Garcia was arrested last week on Clinton Street on the Lower East Side with a gun and crack for sale. He was targeted for a search due to being on a scooter without a license plate. 

  On September 18, 2023 Garcia was before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Jennifer E. Willis. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court.

  The AUSA said Garcia is a gang member who lives in The Bronx and goes down to the Lower East Side to "trap" or sell drugs.

The Federal Defender said he could live in Queens, under home detention. He acknowledges this is probably "only a suppression case," that would ride on challenging the basis for the search. 

 Judge Willis said that given the high penalties that attach if suppression doesn't work, she would detain Garcia.

The Federal Defender asked for a preliminary hearing within two weeks.

 The case is US v. Garcia, 23-mj-6441 (Willis)
