James Ryan Looking Over Confiscated Narcotics

(Original Caption) James C. Ryan, district supervisor of the Bureau of Narcotics, left, Chief of Police of White Plains William A Sullivan and Deputy Sheriff John McCarthy, right, look over a table full of heroin and narcotic items seized in a raid by federal agents. Arrests were staged in Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, East Harlem and White Plains by about 30 federal agents who worked closely with White Plains and New York police. The raids and subsequent arrests uncovered a giant nationwide wholesale dope distribution syndicate which did a $25,000,000 a year business.
