East Village Link In Columbia Drug Case

An East Village man has been named by the authorities as a supplier to five Columbia University students who were arrested earlier today and charged with running a drug ring. The police said that Miron Sarzynski, and his girlfriend, Megan Asper, were arrested Oct. 27 in Mr. Sarzynski’s apartment on East Sixth Street. In addition to drug charges for the pair, Mr. Sarzynski also faces kidnapping charges after the authorities said that he tried to hire an undercover officer to abduct a rival drug dealer.—Meredith Hoffman
