NEW YORK (AP) - A Brooklyn butcher called his specialty "hot kielbasa" - for snorting, not eating.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says the kielbasa was really cocaine - not the Polish sausage sold in a popular meat market.
According to a criminal complaint, the "hot kielbasa" was kept in the basement.
Twenty-six suspects are under arrest, including the butcher, after an informant visited the shop in response to the message: "Come to the store, I have hot kielbasa for you."
Law enforcement officials say the ring includes John Guarnieri, a nephew of Louis Eppolito, the former NYPD detective convicted of murdering eight people on the orders of a Mafia boss.
Guarnieri is a Department of Sanitation police lieutenant. Defense attorney Ken Montgomery says he doesn't think the suspect is "a major player." .
