Dominican Leader of Bronx Heroin ring known as “La Perla Organization” is arrested


Bronx District Attorney Robert T. Johnson announced the seizure of more than $1.5 million in cash and an undisclosed amount of heroin today. The money and illegal drugs were taken during the execution of 15 search warrants in the Fordham area of the Bronx.A grand jury returned an 82 count indicted, charging most of the individuals involved with conspiracy to distribute, and varying counts of possession and sale of heroin.



The warrants also lead to the arrests of 31 alleged members with authorities expecting more as the investigation continues. Authorities say a vast majority of those arrested are either Latin King gang members or gang associates.



Detectives purchased 4 kilograms of heroin sold under various brands including the namesake, La Perla, Tuna, Salsa, and Sabroso throughout their investigation. They also recovered four guns and confiscated twelve vehicles. Court documents note that the ring was active over a period of five years from July 23, 2005 through July 22, 2010.



Authorities allege that “La Perla” sold heroin at three locations spread throughout the Bronx at Valentine Ave., between 194th and 196th Streets, 157th Street and Gerard Avenue, and 180th Street and Mohegan Avenue.Johnson alleges that daily sales raked in $25,000 and $40,000 and only occurred during two five-hour shifts Monday through Friday with an additional eight-hour shift on the weekends.



Officials have identified Wilson Guerrero (aka Wilson) 48, of 1023 Tiffany Street, the Bronx; Antonio Carasquillo (aka Tony) 51, of 1405 Rosedale Avenue, the Bronx; Enrique Esquillin (aka Rick) 45, of 2194 Barnes Avenue, the Bronx; and Luis Esquillin (aka Gabe) 47, of 295 Main Street, Eastchester, New York.



They are also charged with conspiracy in the 2nd degree and criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance.

If convicted the leaders of the ring can face a maximum sentence of up to life imprisonment if convicted of the most serious charge under the Drug Kingpin statute
