City police arrested 21-year-old Tydis K. Robertson during a Madison Avenue drug raid on Friday morning that led to the recovery of 2,900 glassines of heroin, according to police.
Robertson was arrested and charged with drug offenses and for having a high capacity magazine during the raid at 517 Madison Avenue at about 11:15 a.m., said police.
$1,083 in suspected drug money was seized from Robertson in the raid, said police.
Police director Jerry Speziale vowed to continue raiding drug distribution locations while going after street demand.
“Those that believe they can sell drugs behind closed doors are fooling themselves as we will hit inside locations and those responsible will be arrested facing swift and decisive justice,” said Speziale.
