By MATTHEW NESTEL, NY Post
City narcotics cops shut down a massive drug ring that was operating out of a Far Rockaway housing project, authorities said.
Fifty suspected drug pushers were hauled in on Wednesday for selling dope out of the Hammel Houses on Rockaway Beach Boulevard.
Cops made as many as 174 undercover drug deals during the six-month sting and confiscated a stashes of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, crack and other opiates, according to Capt. Thomas Marren of Queens Narcotics.
The dealers included members of the Bloods and the Crips. Cops are looking for 13 more suspects wanted in connection with the drug ring.
