Police: Pimp in Heroin-Prostitution Ring Wrote Chilling Guidelines

An alleged mastermind of the ring that ensnared a Farmingville woman in a major heroin and prostitution ring shared a note with his accomplice explaining how to manage prostitutes.

Details continue to emerge in the major heroin-prostitution bust that led to the , of Farmingville last Sunday. The District Attorney's office released a telling letter from one suspect to another.

While the text of his note may seem like something out of a HBO drama, the Suffolk County District Attorney on Tuesday said the harrowing screed, written by an alleged drug dealer and pimp, illustrates the type of criminal business that was being run right under the noses of locals in the community.

District Attorney Thomas Spota presented the note, titled "Rules 2 Da Game of Hoez!!!" allegedly delivered by Steven McDaniel, 29, as instructions to accomplice Sandra Russell, 26, on how to manage the prostitutes in their operation. The note was seized as part of Monday's massive bust of the organization, which ran a heroin and prostitution ring from Bronx to Brookhaven in places in Coram, Centereach, Medford as well as the Farmingville Kmart and The American Hotel in Port Jefferson Station.


While the note's grammar and tone may strike some as laughable, the message is anything but, reducing the prostitutes to products whose "mind's, body's and soul's" are things to be owned.

Another rule advises that the pimp should "make them understand that you don't need them they need you."

Spota said the major job of running the prostitution ring fell to Russell, and that the letter was advice from McDaniels to his associate.

"Defendant Russell was a master manipulator of these young women who, in exchange for their prostitution services, she provided housing, clothing, food, cell phones and what they needed most – heroin,” Spota said.

McDaniels, of Coram, was charged with one count of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree, one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree and one count of conspiracy in the second degree.
