Staten Island Is Not Quite Mayberry


Thirty-nine people, including that man attempting to eat money, have been arrested in a big Staten Island drug bust — with charges for motorcycle stealing, cocaine dealing, and attempted murder — called Operation Mayberry because one of the accused goes by “Opie.” The Staten Island D.A. spelled out the reference, adding, “These 39 individuals are accused of committing crimes and conspiring to commit crimes that would shock and appall Sheriff Taylor.”
