Drug busts on Long Island lead to big stash of heroin in Woodside, cops say

Dec. 28, 2016 Staff Report

Police discovered a big stash of heroin in Woodside Monday after conducting a series of sting operations following the fatal overdose of a Long Island man.

Nassau County cops arrested four people after conducting three sting operations on December 26, in response to two heroin overdoses—one fatal—in Malverne, Long Island, just days before Christmas.

The police conducted a “buy” operation in Port Washington, Long Island, at 6:10 pm and were sold a quantity of heroin by Jacklyn Seitz, 21, and At Korkut, 26, both from Franklin Square, Long Island. Hours later, at 8:50 pm, in Valley Stream, Long Island, Seitz, Korkut and Scott Moser, 28, sold heroin to undercover officers.

The three were then placed under arrest, according to the Nassau County Police Dept.

They were questioned and told police that they got their heroin from a source in Woodside.

The police conducted a “buy & bust” operation at an undisclosed location in Woodside later that evening resulting in the arrest of Jemaly Thelusma, 27, of 102-21 187th Street, Hollis, Queens. At the time of his arrest he was in possession of 130 glassine envelopes of heroin, police said.

Seitz and Korkut have both been charged with two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree and two counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree.

Moser has been charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree and Criminal Facilitation 4th Degree.

I don’t care what people do to themselves. Legalize drugs or don’t legalize drugs. Really isn’t the problem. The problem is when pregnant women use drugs during their pregnancy. That’s what should be illegal. Drug using and selling is going to happen no matter what. Just lock up the subhuman a-holes who choose their habit over the life they created. This is both men and woman. I know it’s alittle off the topic. But it’s the one thing that irritates me. My brother is a very handsome young man. He has eyes to die for. But, he has autism, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, heart condition and the list goes on and on he requires to have blood test every 3 weeks. Spinal taps every month. He take 12 different medications. He requires finger sticks because one of his meds gave him diabetes. It breaks my heart to have to stick him cause he can’t understand this is for his life. He thinks he’s being punished. And that makes me cry uncontrollably. I gave up having children because he requires so much help. My mother adopted him in 1996. Of course me being so much older he was my little pet. I truly don’t mean to ramble on. But I just wish people think before using and conceiving. And I know off the topic a little. But must me said.


These fools look like mules and sub-sub-sub-sub contractors. Find the actual source, or make these fools talk and lead you to source. I think NYPD enjoys busting these small time dealers and make it public. Remember the guy with the guns and ammunition in Sunnyside gardens, whatever happened to his story? Obviously, you pick one weed, another one grows in his place, as we can see in this example.

Pat, while I agree we should know more about these people, and their circle, I don’t think exact location is necessary. We don’t want to create a pizzagate of our own by making people think there is a drug-distribution center at the location.


people ought to know where exactly this happened we the people have a right to know what happens in our backyard – this should not be a cover up of where this happened at all


Holy crap in Woodside WHERE in Woodside
Shouldn’t the people of Woodside be made aware of the location. They busted it already

Alriiight Alriiiight Alriiiiiiight

If the government and police allow you to read books to fill your mind and worship religions to fill your heart what business is it to them on what you ingest?

The war on drugs is a complete failure because its really a war on Liberty. The Right to live your life to succeed is what most people identify themselves with but you must also remember that you also have a right to ruin your life (with drugs, alcohol etc…). You must question the roll of government and government can never protect you from yourself.

The prohibition is still alive and well and this is a prime example. It’s up to the People to truly end it and legalize Liberty.
