State Police and DEA Take Down International Drug Ring in “Operation Next Day Air”

West Trenton, N.J. – The New Jersey State Police Crime Suppression South Unit and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) arrested nine people in connection with an international drug ring that was based in Jamaica and operated in New Jersey and California, supplying drugs across the United States. Members of this international drug trafficking organization and its leader, Andrew Davis, have been arrested and the organization dismantled by this multi-agency coordinated effort.

The investigation, dubbed “Operation Next Day Air,” began in March of 2011 and targeted the shipment of large quantities of cocaine through public delivery services. The joint investigation focused on the alleged drug distribution operation of Andrew Davis, 34, of Kingston, Jamaica. The US Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force arrested Davis in Los Angeles, California on Monday, September 16, 2013. He was extradited to New Jersey on Tuesday, October 8. Davis allegedly directed his organization’s drug operations from various locations in Jamaica, California, and New Jersey. He is also a well-known Jamaican dancehall artist who goes by the name “Flippa Mafia.”

Investigators determined that after Andrew Davis returned to Jamaica in 2012, Andrew Davis’ brother, Kemar Davis, 22, of Hollywood, California took over the transcontinental shipping operation and sent large quantities of drugs from California to New Jersey, in close consultation with Andrew Davis and Marsha Bernard, 28 of Cherry Hill. Once the drugs arrived in New Jersey, Marsha Bernard, and others, received the shipments of cocaine for further distribution to other drug traffickers throughout New Jersey. Bernard, under the direction of the Davis brothers, primarily dealt with the customers, most of whom purchased kilogram quantities from the Davis Organization, and collected the money from the buyers. Bernard would then handle the drug proceeds as they were sent back to Andrew Davis in Jamaica and to Kemar Davis in California.

The investigation began in March of 2011, when detectives and agents from the Camden High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force along with the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office seized two packages from a mail facility in Marlton, New Jersey, allegedly destined for Andrew Davis and Marsha Bernard. Each package contained four kilograms of cocaine.

In a coordinated effort between the New Jersey State Police and the DEA, over the course of this investigation, detectives documented meetings involving the transfer of multiple kilograms of cocaine among Shelly Ann Brown, 34, of Trenton, Marsha Bernard, Sidonie McLeod, 28, of Cherry Hill, and James McBride, 40.

On March 11, 2013 Angel Rivera, 35, and Juan Cortez 41, both of Vineland, were arrested after investigators observed Marsha Bernard deliver a package containing approximately one kilogram of cocaine to them in Cherry Hill, which they thereafter secreted in a hidden compartment in Rivera’s vehicle. A stolen handgun was later recovered from Rivera’s residence.

On March 15, 2013 State Police detectives and DEA agents coordinated the initial arrests in Operation Next Day Air as a significant shipment of cocaine arrived from California. The execution of multiple search and arrest warrants in Cherry Hill and Mt. Laurel resulted in the arrests of Marsha Bernard, Shelly Ann Brown, Sidonie McLeod, and James McBride, all in connection with an additional three kilograms of cocaine seized immediately following its distribution by McLeod to McBride. That same day, DEA agents arrested Kemar Davis in Los Angeles, California. Hioka Myrie, 33, of Philadelphia, subsequently turned herself in to detectives on May 14, 2013.

In total, detectives recovered more than 26 kilograms of cocaine, worth approximately $780,000, two handguns, and more than $600,000 in cash. Although significant seizures on their own, this investigation has revealed that these seizures are but a small percentage of the total amount of cocaine brought into New Jersey by Andrew Davis’ drug trafficking organization. The case will be prosecuted by the Division of Criminal Justice under the Office of the Attorney General.

“These international cocaine traffickers were using major parcel shippers to put their poison on the streets of New Jersey, where it fueled all of the secondary crimes and violence that are inextricably linked to drug dealing,” said New Jersey Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman. “With this outstanding multi-agency investigation, we have ‘stopped shipment’ on this drug syndicate and made our communities safer.”

“This investigation gradually uncovered a complicated puzzle of money and drugs, and locked up the people responsible for injecting large drug shipments into our communities,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. “I want to commend all of the law enforcement agencies involved for their ability to stop this intricate drug network that threatened the quality of life for the citizens of New Jersey.”

“Law Enforcement at all levels have joined forces to assist in the dismantling of this drug trafficking organization,” said Carl J. Kotowski, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, New Jersey Division. “It is this continued cooperation that led to these drug traffickers being taken off the street.”

  4. But how come dem big big investigators yah cyaa get Hioka ting right. One news source say she a 35 one say she a 33. A wha really a gwan offa deh so? Jersey ago nyam dem food like warf dog.

    1. @Glammity…I feel the same way. How and why was she released on ROR for conspiracy? I wonder if she got held before and became the mole.
      Good Evening Metttyyyy

      1. You being in association wid flippa could easily fall into that. There’s proof that she a him woman and she was present in Jamaica when he wasn’t in the US. It’s easy to associate her with conspiracy by association.

        She may have even brought him money and clothes when she went to Jamaica and all have her name on Western Union slips or she was a middle person in verbal transactions…easy fi catch a conspiracy charge all if you have an attitude and withholding information.

      2. A man known fi a fling money out a bag, wear expensive clothes and no form a legal enterprise inna him name along…don’t need a mole.

        Glad his ass got busted. ANY harm to my country is harm to me.

  5. hmmm, yes this is what flossing bring. Mi caan rejoice in people downfall but every action have a reaction, there is consequences for everything. All di street pharmacists need to take note- know when to hold them, fold them, walk away or run! Red bottoms and champagne are now a thing of the past smh…

  6. good nite met and jmg now me knw why masha always look stress out and worry in the party she always worry the feds or police maybe closing in

      1. because she did know she aguh get catch she just didnt know it would be so soon. They probably had a plan map out fi run weh where the sun sets and never got caught but she was so much involved in it, i guess she finally feeling the wrath but all i know is they were heavy not no play play money.

    1. no but if u a di boss u back supposed to broad because a two lane..death or jail..she mus did prepare so y di tears? Im so mad she did involved ina dis greedy garbage smh

          1. Greedy gal dat man wid no damn ounce of values. How the f!ck she and the ooman yuh babyfada a f!ck and breed end up in a jail?

          2. idiot demmmmmmmmm clown dem bout she a send down money to flippa..a straight a gambling house him did go.but i believe he came up to face his charges .him neva come fi work

          3. And that is what I’ve always wondered with these hustlers…why would you involve your ooman in a dem tingz deh??? Dem deh kinda dealings cyaaaahhhh come nuh weh near my home, my kids nor me…this is a prime example of ( NEVER mix business with pleasure)..

      1. She is lucky that it was the police that came knocking at the door. I know one chick that got shot five times, played dead and lived when the robbers showed up at her apartment. for the drugs and money. They think this business is child’s play?

        The interesting part is where they said she was observed delivering 1 Kilo to the spanish dude. Hmmm…She is one brave soul. I brethren of mine and went to deliver the stuff and the the boys shot him dead inside the apartment complex in broad daylight and took the stuff without paying a dime. Marsha was playing in a big man’s game and these fools seemed quite inexperience to me. They are lucky they are alive today. Prison is the best thing that could happen to them.

          1. Metty, Marsha reminds me of the Columbian boss lady, Griselda Blanco…she was nutten to be played with ( Cocaine Clwboys)

      2. Fi true met…anybody who get dem self inna illegal activity should be prepared for the worst just in case dem get caught …dem hav fi grow a thick skin

          1. She should be somewhere far away enjoying the fruits of Flippa’s labor instead of being involved. Take a page out of the Mavis’s book, wives are not involved. And there are men selling from where dem live with wife/woman and kids. I’m sorry for the kids, no mommy and daddy. Sidoney baby must be asking when is mommy coming home.

  7. Damn flippa look stress! No wata, no champagne,no bills to make it rain??!! I hope dem sen him home quick, jail is no place for flossing……
