HACKENSACK - A parolee who was convicted of the rape and murder of two teenage boys in Virginia --as well as a string of child rapes in New Jersey--was among more than 150 individuals targeted in the largest undercover drug investigation in city history, according to Hackensack Police Director Michael Mordaga.
Over the course of seven months, undercover Hackensack detectives made hundreds of purchases of heroin, crack, powdered cocaine, "Molly" MDMA, Oxycodone, methamphetamine, "wet" marijuana, and other narcotics at city parks, private residences, restaurants, and shopping centers, Mordaga
"While interacting with Williams and other associates [of] Williams, the undercover officer learned of a stabbing Williams had committed on February 6, 2014," Mordaga said.
Cold case detectives around the state have been notified of the ongoing investigation into Williams, Mordaga
It wasn't paranoia - the pizza delivery driver and others purchased raw materials from China to create their own batches of "Molly" MDMA, later selling it to undercover police officers, Mordaga
The narcotics dragnet also removed an out-of-work EMT from the drug trade, according to Mordaga
credited the sheriff's department, the Little Ferry Police Department and the Bergen County
Prosecutor's Office for aiding in the investigation, which deployed about 250 officers to conduct the weekend raids.
