A 28-year-old convict from Westchester will spend time behind bars after admitting to selling crack-cocaine to undercover investigators earlier this year.
Harry Quintana-Cruz - aka “YG” - of Yonkers, has been sentenced to six and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a felony, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, announced on Tuesday, July 30.
Quintana-Cruz, a second felony offender, pleaded guilty in April after being arrested by police in Yonkers last December.
Scarpino said that on four separate occasions in March and April 2017, Quintana-Cruz sold drugs to an undercover Yonkers police officer in the Nodine Hill section of the city. The initial investigation into crack cocaine sales in the area came about due to the activity of the 150 Clan, a gang that operates in that part of Yonkers, the District Attorney noted.
Quintana-Cruz was arrested by police in Yonkers on Dec. 19 last year, following an indictment that was delivered by a Westchester County grand jury.
The DA noted that the case was part of a multi-agency narcotics investigation in Yonkers that was conducted by his office, the Yonkers Police Department and the Westchester County Department of Public Safety.
