Miguel Vicente of Williamsburg is one of 14 people arrested in connection to a heroin ring spanning from Brooklyn to Long Island. 32-year-old Vincente is thought to be the king pin and accused of supplying the heroin- around 10,000 pounds of it. The ring supposedly sold over 360,000 bags over the past year, worth about $3.6 million. He and the others appeared in court Wednesday and are charged with drug trafficking, possession and conspiracy among other offenses. Vicente, maintaining his innocence, faces a possible life sentence if convicted. His bail is set at $2.5 million as he awaits his next court date on May 9.
