Feds charge Roslindale man as drug kingpin; West Roxbury man also faces charges

Federal officials yesterday charged Starling "Bladi" Bladmil Gonzalez, who lives in half of a two-family at 99 Glendower Rd. in Roslindale, as one of two men who ran a ring that imported heroin, fentanyl and cocaine into the Boston area.

As he was being arrested, DEA agents and state troopers were searching his Glendower Road apartment in search of records, phones and other possible evidence further connecting him to the ring he allegedly ran with Deiby Victoria of Saugus, who was also arrested.

Also charged in connection with the ring: Johan Montanez Pizzaro, who lives in an apartment at 5050 Washington St. in West Roxbury. An affidavit by a DEA agent in the case alleges that Bladmil and Victoria used the apartment to "store, mix and package drugs."

The two, along with 17 other people, were charged with conspiring to distribute heroin, Fentanyl and cocaine. Two other people were charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession with the intent to distribute heroin; another person was arrested on state charges.

The US Attorney's office charges the ring, under surveillance for several months, brought drugs in from Mexico and the Dominican Republic for resale to smaller dealers in the Boston area and Rhode Island.

Victoria and his associates distributed drugs through several traditional means, such as couriers and stash houses, however they also used novel techniques, including distributing drugs at what purported to be a used car business in Dorchester. The members of the organization collected payments and then directed drug buyers to the cars in which the drugs were hidden.

The US Attorney's office adds:

In a series of arrests and searches conducted early this morning, approximately 8 kilograms of heroin, a number of firearms, and approximately $500,000 in cash, luxury vehicles, and Rolex watches were seized.

The DEA agent's affidavit detailed the routine of running a large drug ring: Vittoria and Bladmil Gonzalez were constantly on a series of cell phones arranging purchases and sales, complaining about the poor quality of some of their purchases (in one case, even pondering if they should try to get their money back), directing underlings to put pressure on people who owed them money.

And they were a suspicious lot. In addition to frequently changing phones, they suspected law enforcement everywhere - correctly as it turns out:

On November 29, 2016, investigators parked a civilian vehicle equipped with a hidden camera in the vicinity of 5050 Washington Street. The following afternoon, GORDO was intercepted over Target Telephone #17 talking to BLADI. During the call, BLADI gave GORDO an accurate description of the vehicle with the hidden camera and told GORDO that he thought it was a law enforcement vehicle, including the fact that it had a state police sticker on the rear window. BLADI told GORDO he was not going to leave Target Location #8 [the 5050 Washington St. apartment] until the vehicle left. I believe BLADI arrived at Target Location #8 and saw the vehicle, which he thought was a surveillance vehicle, and that he believed that Target Location #8 was might be under surveillance. I further believe BLADI did not want to leave Target Location #8 because he believed he it was under surveillance and wanted to see if anyone got into the vehicle to confirm his suspicion.

Sometimes, ring members tried their own wares. On Nov. 2, paramedics had to go to Montanez Pizzaro's 5050 Washington St. apartment because he'd apparently overdosed on heroin and was unconscious.

Innocent, etc.

Hopefully they can round up the rest of the family and get them the hell out of here. Make no mistake others in these Families will gladly pick up the reins where they left off.

Miami Vice has clearly given me a false impression about the glamorous life afforded to drug dealers. Living in a two family on Glendower? I guess the modern Crockett and Tubbs would be driving around in a Subaru Outback...

With how expensive Rozzie has gotten, living in a two family is the glamorous life. Maybe they even have parking for their Subaru Outback.

The guy correctly ID'd a surveillance vehicle? Beyond the fact that he belongs in jail, this would make for interesting TV. Also I doubt I'm the only one who's come across those 'FBI Surveillance Van' wifi networks, makes you wonder lol.

I was wondering how much heroin 8 kg is relative to the demand in Mass. This is my back of the envelope calculation. To be clear, the assumptions below are wild guesses based on a little googling and I'm happy to hear about better data.

The population of Mass. is about 6.75mm.

Assume 0.25% of population are daily or near-daily heroin users. That's about 16900 users.

Assume 1/3 gram per day per user.

Multiplying those, the result is about 5,600 grams -- 5.6 kg -- per day, or 2,050 kg per year. (For context, 5.6 kg is about the weight of a gallon of paint. 2,050 kg is the weight of an SUV.)

So 8 kg is a considerable amount -- something like a day or more's worth of the entire supply for Mass. -- but it's sort of a hiccup in the overall annual flow.

(None of this is intended as criticism of DEA or its mission -- you can draw your own conclusions as to that. I'm just trying to get a sense of the scale.)

8 kilos of heroin (depending on purity) can be cut with a number of different substances to double or even triple the weight and value. sometimes they cut with Fentanyl which is extremely dangerous and deadly. these scumbags don't care what kind of poison they sell to people to shoot into their veins.

to me this is better than 20 guns being taken off the street, more people saved for now but it never stops.

... would go into daily use figure. I assume that 1/3 gram is some larger amount of weight that has been cut so that the net is 1/3 gram.

1289 of these user died in 2014 another 1724 in 2015 and 1005 this year up till september. 1500 more will die in 2017.
The scumbags are putting everyone out of business.
