YONKERS — “Operation Trick-or-Deal with” continued with the arrest of Elvin Gomez on Wednesday.

He was one of many six remaining suspects within the police division’s main drug crackdown, dubbed “Operation Trick-or-Deal with,” that has now yielded 26 arrests of road- and mid-degree drug sellers. They’ve been charged with felony felony sale of medicine. 

Through the investigation, undercover officers purchased over four hundred luggage of heroin and forty grams of powder and crack cocaine, in addition to PCP and prescribed drugs.

The months-long operation was built on complaints, reports of drug sales, undercover police work and intelligence, Police Commissioner Charlie Gardner said during a news conference Tuesday.
