6th Precinct continues to hit drug dealers

BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Police officers from Greenwich Village’s 6th Precinct continue to aggressively arrest drug dealers along Sixth Avenue and other spots in and around Washington Square Park.

“We will continue to aggressively remove dangerous and illegal drugs off of our streets,” Captain Jason Zeikel, the precinct’s commanding officer, said on X. “Listening to our community, we will continue to aggressively pursue drug dealers on the 6th Ave corridor.”

And the crackdown is not just limited to highly addictive hard drugs, like crack cocaine, fentanyl and heroin. Local cops are also making busts at unlicensed marijuana shops and confiscating their goods.

“If you are interested in buying cannabis,” Zeikel said, “buy it from a New York State-licensed dispensary not an illegal smoke shop.”
