The last suspect wanted in connection with a 2012 cocaine trafficking operation that ran through Cortland County was picked up Sunday.
Cortland County Sheriff’s Deputies went to Brooklyn Sunday and picked up 33-year-old Kamar Davidson.
Davidson is one of 39 suspects from Cortland, Buffalo, Syracuse, Watertown and other parts of New York– along with New Jersey and Puerto Rico linked to the largest cocaine bust ever made in Cortland County.
Investigators say that Davidson oversaw the “cocaine pipeline” that extended from the New York City area into Cortland County. All of the other defendants in the case dubbed “operation southbound” have been prosecuted or have taken plea deals.
Davidson was arrested Sunday in New York City on a misdemeanor marijuana charge. He attempted to conceal his real identity by giving police a different name.
Davidson is facing serious felony drug charges including two counts of sale and two counts of possessing a controlled substance in addition to a charge of conspiracy.
He faces anywhere from 25 years to life in prison on the charges. He is set to be arraigned on the charges today in Cortland County Court.
The New York State Attorney Generals Organized Crime Task Force is prosecuting the case.
