A 22-year-old woman who plays a blue fairy in a rap video about the prescription drug use lifestyle on Staten Island has been arrested — for dealing pills.
Sharissa Turk, who works at Edible Arrangements during the day, was arrested along with nearly three-dozen ‘loosely affiliated drug dealers on Staten Island’s south shore,’ according to police.
In a sweep of 12 different locations, officers seized a large quantity of loose pills: 595 Oxycodone, 300 Vicodin, 300 Xanax, 250 grams of cocaine, 209 glassines of heroin, and 16 oz. of marijuana, as well as $17,000 U.S. currency, and a loaded 380-caliber handgun.
Police also found numerous weapons, including: a loaded 380-caliber semi-automatic Keltec handgun, a loaded 40-caliber Smith and Wesson semi-automatic, a 45-caliber Colt semi-automatic and a Mossberg pistol grip shotgun.
Turk played a psychedelic fairy in “My World is Blue”, an amateur rap video about the prescription drug culture on Staten Island.
It was shot mostly on Staten Island, including several scenes inside of a Duane Reade pharmacy. “180 pills a month and I got another script, I’m on a first-name basis at the pharmacy.”
Police arrested Turk Wednesday at her Edible Arrangements job; she was set to appear in Staten Island Criminal Court Thursday.
The suspects in the case range from 18 to 54, and face charges that include: possession and sale of a controlled substance, possession and sale of firearm, possession and sale of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.
