Traffic Violations

Police have obtained indictments of drug charges against five members of a Brooklyn drug ring widely known for suspending sales during Shabbat. The five suspects named in the indictment were taken into custody in an April 20th raid after a six month investigation dubbed "Only after Sundown," according to a press release issued today by New York City Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridgett Brennan.

Named in the indictment are: Jack Zibak, 28, 2133 E. 21st St., Brooklyn; Jack Zaibak, 24, 4190 Bedford Ave., Apt. 3C, Brooklyn; Eduard Sorin, 38, 4190 Bedford Ave., Apt. 3C, Brooklyn; David Gerowitz, 37, 4190 Bedford Ave., Apt. 3C, Brooklyn; and Philip Mandel, 25, 2654 East 63 St., Brooklyn. An additional man, 30 year-old Aron Dombroff of 2154 East 35th St., Brooklyn, was also arrested in the April 20th raid. 

All were hit with multiple counts of drug charges, weapons charges and conspiracy charges stemming from the business which operated out of an apartment at 4190 Bedford Avenue in Sheepshead Bay.

Police said the group was always extremely diligent in informing and reminding its customer base that drugs would not be sold during the hours observing Shabbat.

Some sample texts between dealer and customer from March 29th read, "He said he can't do that but he can give you an 8 for 275 but its only gonna be tomorrow because he is closed for Shabbat. And the safe is locked. Another from April 12th says, "We are closing 7:30 on the dot and we will reopen Saturday 8:15 so if u need anything you have 45mins to get what you want."

Police raided the Bedford Ave. apartment April 20th after a text signaling "open for business" was generated from the premises.

Zibak, Zaibak, Sorin, and Gerowitz were all arrested in the raid, while Mandel was picked-up before he got there.

Police say the raid netted 900 glassines of heroin, 335 oxycodone pills, and quantities of the other drugs along with a sawed-off shotgun and ammunition--also a BlackBerry used to text customers, drug paraphernalia, and other items.

Zaibak and Sorin allegedly went to pharmacies to fill the phony oxycodone prescriptions, and recruited others to do so, prosecutors said.

The alleged dealers also received frequent shipments of heroin, prosecutors said. They allegedly sold 819 glassines with individual doses of heroin, worth nearly $8,500, to undercover officers between March and April

Sorin is expected to be arraigned on the conspiracy indictment Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court before Judge Michael R. Sonberg, with additional court dates to follow in coming weeks.
