(SUFFOLK COUNTY, N.Y.) – Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney today announced that Jordan Mosley, 22, of Islip Terrace, was indicted for allegedly selling pills that contained fentanyl to a 25-year-old East Islip man which caused his death, and illegally possessing a loaded firearm.
“Selling deadly fentanyl pills is no different than shooting a loaded gun in a crowded room and the number of Suffolk County residents dying from drug overdoses every day is tragic,” said District Attorney Tierney. “Our lawmakers need to help us. Young people are dying and we cannot even ask for bail for fentanyl dealers until after someone dies. This is unconscionable.”
According to the investigation, on December 29, 2022, the body of a 25-year-old man was discovered at his residence in East Islip after he died of an apparent drug overdose. Through their investigation, detectives learned that Mosley allegedly sold the victim pills and what he claimed was cocaine, the night before the victim’s death, which was December 28, 2022. After the sale, Mosley allegedly offered to sell the victim more pills later the same night. The Suffolk County Medical Examiner determined that the victim died of the combined effects of fentanyl, xylazine, and bromazolam intoxication.
On January 26, 2023, Mosley operated the same vehicle he used to allegedly deliver the pills to the victim and was pulled over by a Suffolk County Police officer for overly dark tinted windows. Inside that vehicle, police found felony weight cocaine, a digital scale, plastic bags, 39 pills that had the same markings, shape, and color as oxycodone, but contained fentanyl, and pills that had the same markings, shape, and color as alprazolam, but contained bromazolam – an uncontrolled substance that has a similar chemistry to alprazolam. Mosley was also allegedly found with illegally possessing a loaded revolver on his waistband.
On May 25, 2023, Mosley was arraigned before Acting Supreme Court Justice, the Honorable Richard I. Horowitz, for the charges of:
Judge Horowitz ordered Mosley to be held on $100,000 cash, $250,000 bond or $750,000 partially secured bond. Mosley is due back in court on June 13, 2023, and is being represented by Michaelangelo Matera, Esq.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Nicole Felice of the Narcotics Bureau, with investigative assistance from Suffolk County Police Department Detective John Denobrega of the Narcotics Section, Suffolk County Detectives Sean Walsh and Jack Ward of the Third Squad, and Suffolk Police Officer John Antoniades.
Criminal complaints and indictments are merely accusatory instruments.
Defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty. No one is above the law.
