BP Fossella, Staten Island Elected Officials to Raise Alarm over Narcotics Allegedly Found at Migrant Shelter On Staten Island
Staten Island, NY – In this video, Borough President Vito Fossella and his fellow Staten Island elected officials inform the public about the reports of dangerous narcotics found at the Ramada Inn in Willowbrook at a press conference on Thursday, October 6th at 11 AM.
Borough President Fossella responded to public reports that one pound of crystal meth was found Wednesday night at the Ramada Inn, which has been used to house migrants since May 4th. If these reports are true, they bring forth concerns about what such a large quantity of this dangerous drug was doing in a hotel that appears to have been used exclusively to house migrants under a program paid for by taxpayer dollars.
Note: The pound of powder in a black bag that was thought to be crystal meth was tested. According to the New York Post, by later that same day, officials from the City confirmed that the substance was, in fact, Epsom salt, a harmless substance which can be purchased locally at any pharmacy or convenience store.
