Almost three dozen people are facing drug and other charges after a massive drug bust on Staten Island.

The New York City Police Department says 32 people were arrested and police say drugs were recovered at 12 different locations.

Hundreds of Oxycodone, Vicodin and Xanex pills were found along with cocaine, heroin, marijuana, $17,000 in cash and several handguns.

Among those arrested was 22-year-old Sharissa Turk.

Authorities say she dressed as a fairy in an amateur music video posted on YouTube poking fun at prescription drug abuse on Staten Island.
