A man from Bristol Township’s Levittown section was arrested along with several others and rapper Fetty Wap as part of a federal drug investigation.

In federal court in New York on Friday, an indictment was unsealed charging Anthony Cyntje, 23, a New Jersey corrections officer from Passaic, New Jersey; Anthony Leonardi, 47, of Coram, New York; Robert Leonardi, 26, of Bristol Township’s Levittown section; William Junior Maxwell II, 30, who is the rapper artist also known as “Fetty Wap;” Brian Sullivan, 26, of Grove, New York; and Kavaughn “KV” Wiggins, 26, of Coram, New York, with conspiring to distribute and possess controlled substances. Five of the defendants are additionally charged with using firearms in connection with drug trafficking. 

The arrests were made recently. Fetty Wap was arrested Friday, and Robert Leonardi was arrested in Pennsylvania on October 13 and ordered detained, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The drug trafficking ring is alleged to have brought cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, and crack cocaine to Long Island, New York and parts of New Jersey after obtaining them from the West Coast, authorities said.

Anthony Leonardi, Robert Leonardi, Sullivan, and Wiggins took part in the purchase and transportation of the narcotics from the West Coast to the East Coast where they were processed and resold them. Fetty Wap was a kilogram-level redistributor and Cyntje transported kilograms of cocaine from New York to New Jersey, authorities said.

Law enforcement said they executed search warrants during the investigation and recovered approximately $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, numerous fentanyl pills, two 9mm handguns, a rifle, a .45 caliber pistol, a .40 caliber pistol, and ammunition. 

“The defendants transported, distributed and sold more than 100 kilograms of deadly and addictive drugs, including heroin and fentanyl, on Long Island, deliberately contributing to the opioid epidemic that has devastated our communities and taken too many lives,” U.S. Attorney Breon Peace said in a statement. “We will continue to work nonstop with our law enforcement partners to keep our neighborhoods safe from the scourge of dangerous drugs and gun violence.”
