As part of “Operation Room Service”, seven vans were removed from the streets of the city.
The vans were parked on the street in the East Village and Chelsea and all had New Jersey license plates.
Their owners are charged with “various alleged offenses”.
Investigators were warned in part by a YouTube video review of one of the vans.
