On Wednesday, an auxiliary cop and a bodybuilder who refers to himself as the Dominican Hulk were among half a dozen defendants brought into Manhattan Supreme Court for selling drugs and guns.

Volunteer Officer Ramon Espinal reportedly organized a gun sale with bodybuilder José Rodriguez, the city’s special narcotics prosecutor revealed.

“Have a Smith & Wesson it is good quality,” Espinal texted Rodriguez on July 24th.

Law enforcement officials said the two planned to meet at Rodriguez’s apartment in The Bronx that day, The New York Post reported.

Roughly three weeks later, Rodriguez sold the firearm to an undercover officer for $500 outside a gym in the Bronx, according to authorities,

The aspiring bodybuilder, who has a “Team Hulk” tattoo on his arm, has posted numerous YouTube videos of himself lifting weights, including with a caption that read: “Gunzzzz All Gunzzzz.”

As he does bicep curls, he speaks into the camera, “You want guns? Everybody wants guns, but they don’t go heavy.”

Officials said another defendant, Jimmy Liu, provided Rodriguez with steroids, who in exchange sold him cocaine.

The six defendants allegedly made 19 drug sales totaling $30,000 to an undercover cop during the wide-ranging wiretap investigation.
