Garcia was arrested by officers from the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision and turned over to deputies.
She is accused of directing the heroin drug trafficking organization from New York City since the summer of 2012 and faces charges of operating as a major trafficker, second-degree conspiracy and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, all felonies, deputies said.
Garcia is being held at the Otsego County jail without bail. If convicted she could face up to 54 years in state prison.
“The arrest of Anays Garcia is satisfying in two ways,” Devlin said. “It not only takes a drug dealer off the street but more importantly it dismantled an elaborate drug trafficking ring.”
Oneonta Police Chief Dennis R. Nayor praised the efforts of the various agencies involved.
“A lot of hard work and mutual agency cooperation went into this investigation, and the arrests were a direct result of that hard work and cooperation,” he said.
