Eight men were arrested for operating a mail-order opioid pill ring out of a Queens warehouse on Thursday morning.
The men allegedly imported millions of opioid pills from India, repackaged them inside the warehouse and mailed them to customers throughout the U.S. during an over 18-month period, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn.
Since January 2018, the men imported and distributed the opioid pills, including the synthetic opioid Tramadol, the release stated. The pills were also misbranded.
