Group of observant Brooklyn drug dealers told customers they were closed for Shabbat: authorities

At least they were observant drug dealers, authorities say.

A group of pushers from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, texted their hours to customers and warned that they closed for Shabbat, according to an indictment unsealed Tuesday.

The indictment accuses the five men of conspiracy for sending texts to customers announcing drugs for purchase, such as DOB for the brand name of heroin sold.

And the messages repeatedly warned customers against arriving after sundown on a Friday or before sundown on Saturday, the indictment alleges.

We are closing 7.30 on the dot and we will reopen Saturday 8.15 so if u need anything you have 45 mins to get what you want, an 12 April message to over 50 recipients read.

The men are accused of peddling heroin, oxycodone, cocaine and other drugs from their Bedford Ave. drug warehouse — via
