News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Mar. 28, 2014: A Jamaican man wanted since October for cocaine trafficking, has been busted by the New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force of the US Marshals Service.
Oneil McKenzie was on Wednesday nabbed after he was spotted driving a Mercedes-Benz SUV in Brooklyn. He was reportedly carrying about US$300,000 in cash on him at the time.
McKenzie is alleged to have used an Albany woman to help import large shipments of cocaine and marijuana that, combined, had a street value estimated at more than US$3 million.
