A group of New York City gang members who refer to themselves the “Brooklyn Outlaws” operated a drug supply network spanning to upstate New York that dealt several kilos of cocaine a month.

On Wednesday, police announced the arrest of five “Brooklyn Outlaws” gang members and the seizure of six firearms.

The probe was launched in April 2016 when prosecutors and state authorities in Albany learned that dealers upstate were heading to Brooklyn to purchase cocaine and heroin, according to the office of city Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan.

Detectives identified Clive “Meech” Laroc, 31, and Terrell “Raw” Edwards, 33, as the suppliers, then used phone taps to learn about the people who were involved in regularly moving drug kilos, the New York Daily News reported.

A kilo of cocaine has an estimated value of $36,000 wholesale.

In one sale in May 2016, Burdette “Junior” Marshall sold Laroc three kilos of cocaine — which is about six and a half pounds.
