Veteran NYPD officer who boasted about loving her job allegedly sold ‘top quality’ fentanyl, heroin — all while on duty
A female NYPD officer who boasted about how much she loved her job was busted this week for allegedly dealing large quantities of narcotics, including fentanyl and heroin, while on duty, federal officials said.
Grace Rose Baez was arrested along with Cesar Martinez, of Yonkers, and charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics and distribution of narcotics, U.S. Attorney of the Southern District of New York Damian Williams said.
Baez, 37, and Martinez, 42, allegedly tried to sell the narcotics to a federal informant between Oct. 9 and Oct. 29, officials said.
Baez, of the Bronx, gave the informant a sample of what she said was “top quality” fentanyl in a Mentos candy container on Tuesday, officials said.
She then told the informant she could sell them a kilo of heroin for $25,000, and 800 grams of fentanyl with pricing to be negotiated later based on the drug’s purity.
