Eight people have been indicted in connection to what prosecutors said was a Brooklyn drug trafficking ring that led to the seizure of six handguns, some of which were found near an elementary school in Queens.
The Special Narcotics Prosecutor's office said Monday that five of the guns were recovered from a home in Rosedale, one block away from the school.
Police said they also found 10 grams of cocaine, drug paraphernalia, and business cards with the name "Menace" at the home.
One gun was also found in a home in Flatbush, according to authorities.
During the course of course of the year-long operation, police said the alleged suspects sold cocaine, crack cocaine, and marijuana to undercover officers nearly 60 times, for a total of more than $38,000.
Investigators say the largest sale was for 62 grams of crack cocaine in exchange for nearly $4,000 on May 11 in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
