Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks & Stanley Sykes’ Backpack Empire

Stanley Sykes Herkimer Thug

Herkimer Syke’s gang head Stanley Sykes, AKA Bob Sykes, greets arriving out-of-town drug mule before taking him on to his next destination. Looks like the Syke’s gang’s running the Herkimer’s way station of a large backpack narcotics distribution network designed to foil aerial observation.

We understand why the criminals who believe they own the Village of Herkimer want us dead.:Our blog and street cameras have helped lessen drug trafficking along Herkimer’s notorious Pleasant Avenue. We’ve pinpointed trafficking and traffickers, arsonists and wanna-be arsonists. We’ve disposed of several street harassers and gotten a few folks locked up who thought it ok to assault seniors in the street.

We pride ourselves on having helped spark Herkimer’s current home sales boom–drawing national attention to the village’s ideal location and surrounding beauty in a time of climate change. The tragedy of Houston will send many folks north seeking improved climate safety.

Of course Herkimer’s shrinking criminal population hates us. They’ve long considered Herkimer a safe haven and Pleasant Avenue their own. Especially the parking lot and houses owned by landlord Jay Smith. 334 Pleasant Avenue and 341 Eureka Avenue, currently occupied by the Stanley Sykes gang, have a long tradition as a clandestine trafficking haven. The Sykes gang feels menaced by the prosperity creeping toward them down Pleasant Avenue including the major home renovation make overs at 331 and 328 Pleasant Ave. Al Murray’s garbage strewn lot has been purchased by a neighbor and now features grass, not trash. Pleasant Avenue is experiencing a return to its former state of quiet village charm.

From what we’ve seen, the Sykes gang tried wholesale trafficking out of the parking lot and 334 Pleasant Avenue in the traditional way, with vehicles. Guess that didn’t go well. Too obvious. Surveillance drones can quickly determine drug trafficking patterns and traffickers. Most people don’t want to see a return to the wild days on Pleasant Avenue when Joyce Barton was undisputed queen of the  street’s bustling trafficking.

Some of Herkimer’s Sykes Gang’s Drug Delivery Vehicles

Two of the vehicles typically used by Herkimer’s Sykes gang to traffic out of Carrie Ann Bass’ rented house at 334 Pleasant Avenue Herkimer. (As with all Sykes gang rentals, a Jay Smith property.) Carrie Ann is allegedly Sykes’ daughter-in-law.

Stanley Sykes’ Gang Niche Drug Market: Backpack Drug Muling

Stanley Sykes, AKA Bob Sykes, may have found a niche market: backpack drug distribution. Backpacks have long been used to move narcotics around Herkimer. But it seems the Sykes gang has become a franchisee within a large network that mules narcotics on backs from town to town. Hard to spot and follow from surveillance drones. Stanley’s been doing a brisk business, building a backpack empire:

The pattern in the video’s clear: backpackers bring the drugs into Herkimer, arriving for distribution at Carrie Bass’ 344 Pleasant Avenue. (Bass is the mother of Stanley’s grandson Harvey, and herself a belligerent street harasser. Harvey’s dad is absent on a heroin trafficking charge.) Stanley Sykes, AKA Bob Sykes, greets and transports them locally or to their next destination. Sometimes the contraband they bring remains, crossing Pleasant Avenue to Joyce Barton’s at 333, coming back to 334 in bags and packs for local distribution. Or parceled out to allies along the street an din the village.)

Herkimer’s Hardest Working Teen

The teen at the end of the above video is seen everywhere in Herkimer Village. He’s a hard working, no-nonsense go-getter. Though at the end of the video, you’ll see he did have some time off. Here’s the outtake:

Viewers of our videos may recognize Jesse McClaren walking with the young backpacker. Jesse soared to YouTube fame as Herkimer’s Historic Crack House Keeper. Like Stanley Syke’s daughter Kyra, he was later arrested for assaulting an elderly war vet. (Me.)

It’s videos like Stanley Sykes’ Backpack Empire and analysis like this that helped end Pleasant Avenue’s wholesale drug trafficking. And put Herkimer on the map. They’ve also caused Stanley Sykes, AKA Bob Sykes, to diversify to an a nearby alternate location, known only to the Sykes gang and government surveillance drones.

Drug Gang Poisons South Herkimer

Street thug tactics succeeded in getting Sykes’ daughter Kyra arrested for criminal harassment. Retaliatory pesticides then began streaming and misting into our yard and windows from Stanley’s parking area, Pleasant Avenue and the rear of another Jay Smith rental a few doors down.

An onslaught of drive-by misting attacks poisoned not only us and our home, but our neighbors and their children too. The poison mists generated from a witches brew of at least three pesticides drifted for blocks in the muggy August air, sickening people and pets. NYDEC became involved. Law enforcement virtually embargoed Pleasant Avenue. Surveillance drones still fill the skies. Yet as recently as 0724 this morning, fresh pesticide misted in from the direction of 334 Pleasant Avenue rear.

Our attackers took their poisoning preparations seriously. Here’s a Sykes gang member (whom we refer to as Glowering Goat Beard), and what seems a consultant, inspecting the target area of our home. (The helmet should go on before coming into camera range, not after.)
