NEW YORK — Authorities say eight people are charged with narcotics trafficking following an undercover investigation at a Brooklyn public housing complex.
District Attorney Kenneth Thompson and Police Commissioner William Bratton say about 95 undercover buys of crack, heroin and marijuana were made during the eight-month operation at Lafayette Gardens.
Thompson says several others are expected to be charged at a later date.
Thompson notes that it's the second narcotics takedown in as many weeks in north Brooklyn.
He says the NYPD and prosecutors are committed to improving the quality of life and safety of the development's "hardworking residents."
