Accused NYC drug dealer was ‘security’ in fatal undercover bust

An accused drug dealer nabbed after an undercover bust turned fatal in Manhattan last week was acting as “security” for the deal, according to new court papers. Jefry Silvestre and an unnamed co-conspirator were unknowingly selling cocaine to an informant, the US Drug Enforcement Agency wrote in the Manhattan Federal Court filing. Silvestre had made the trip from Philadelphia to the Big Apple to bring $15,500 in cash to the co-conspirator, who then mentioned he was about to do a drug deal and asked Silvestre to stay and act as security, prosecutors contend. But after the informant confirmed the...

Chilling video shows gunman shooting NYC gas station worker

Chilling video captures the moment a masked gunman shot a Bronx gas station worker in the head without saying a word — in what authorities believe could be a senseless random attack.  Footage of the Tuesday shooting, released Thursday night, shows a man calmly strolling up to the door of a locked Sunoco on Boston Road near Astor Avenue in Allerton around 7 p.m. The gunman appears to gesture toward the pumps as if there is a problem before firing off his weapon, the clip shows. The 49-year-old worker was struck in the head, cops said. Police sources told The Post the suspect said absolutely nothing as he fired twice at the worker in an apparently random act.  The worker was taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where he remained in critical condition Friday afternoon.  Nothing further was known about the motive Friday, and no arrests had been made.  The victim has worked at the gas station for more than 15 years and didn’t appear to have previous disputes with anyone, his co-workers said, according to the sources.

In political shift, Westchester trends as influential Democrat suburb

After decades as a Republican stronghold, New York’s Westchester County is now one of the nation’s most influential Democratic suburbs, according to a new analysis of this year’s election data. Population shifts triggered by the coronavirus pandemic have tilted Westchester, the city’s largest northern suburb, into a blue bastion that helped rescue Gov. Kathy Hochul’s re-election bid — and blunted the the Republican Party’s widely anticipated “red wave,” Politico reported Saturday. “Westchester is almost becoming the sixth borough,” former Republican county executive Rob Astorino said. “It’s becoming an extension, in some ways, of Manhattan.” Current County Executive George Latimer, the...
