Child Trafficker Carrie Ann Bass Sparks Roman Fire Foray

Hits: 449

Stephen Ames Berry

On 5/13/22, Herkimer gang gal Carrie Ann Bass hosted a large fire-themed party at Herkimer’s Historic Child Trafficking Hub, presided over by Bass and owned by landlord Jay Smith. The centerpiece of that most recent raucous gathering was a large illegal fire, which was twice shut down by Herkimer Police following my 911 calls. 

Bass rents a house on one end of the trafficking hub–341 Eureka Avenue– and has long treated the hub as her little empire for dirt: child trafficking, drug trafficking, poison gassing of nosy neighbors, criminal tampering. Cops and cameras have done much to stifle her, but she’s still there, the last holdout of the Stanley Sykes gang.

A criminal mastermind, Bass typically strikes back by hiring others, as happened here a week later.

The Roman Fire Foray

Audio: 00:40–Chatter     1:22-1:30 Wood breaking 

The Roman fire squad slipped into the child trafficking lot under the cover of darkness at 0200 hrs on 5/22.  They came in two cars whose license plate frames read “Rome Pre-Owned” and filled with wooden shipping pallets. (Never saw the two of them or their cars before.)

By 0204 they’d broken up some of the pallets and were kindling a fire in the rickety cinder block structure used for the party bonfire two weeks before.  I called 911.  The Herkimer Police police responded and made them put out the fire.

Undeterred, they later broke up another shipping pallet and started the fire anew, moving a car between the fire and our cameras. The brief and no doubt unsatisfactory fire quickly ran out of fuel.  Unusually, they didn’t rip the slats off of our poor old fence to kindle the flames. (24 cameras. )

Two of them then hung around for hours, waiting for Bass to return, presumably to be paid–she’d cleverly left well before they arrived. One of them met briefly with her, and then they were gone. Haven’t seen them time since. (The lad with the nice pink underwear doing some weeding should thank me for not putting that clip on YouTube. )

Herkimer Fire Freaks Frolic Fecklessly

5/19/22 – Poison gas attacks on us have ramped up since we posted this. 

Last Friday evening, 5/13/22, noted Herkimer poison gasser, drug and child trafficker Cary Ann Bass threw a party for her friends and colleagues in Herkimer’s Historic Child Trafficking Lot. The property has long been owned by Herkimer landlord Jay Smith.

Bass, an enduring blight on the Herkimer community, lives at Smith’s 341 Eureka Avenue, one of the three properties comprising the child trafficking lot. At her party’s height, there were about 20 people in attendance:

The celebration lasted until the wee hours of the following day, orchestrated by booming quasi-music and a constantly stoked illegal fire. The fire was the centerpiece of the festivities, set amid some loosely stacked cinder blocks next to dry brush and a wooden fence.  (In Herkimer, we call this crack craftsmanship.)

It wouldn’t have taken much to send the whole flaming ramshackle mess tumbling into the brush–no mortar in that structure. It’s been very dry here–every few hours we seem to get a dry weather fire warning from the Weather Service.   The gang probably plans to use it for future parties. Someone needs to rain on their parade.

It required two 911 police responses to get the revelers to bank their illegal fire. It should have been extinguished. Herkimer Village doesn’t permit fire within 100 feet of a structure–that’s most of the village.

To be fair, these folks were sedate compared to previous next-door firebugs, such as drug trafficker Kyle (“I’m gonna sell crack until I die”) Stone. Though his fires never lasted as long or soared as high as their bonfire.

Hopefully, after this post and the 911 calls, village authorities will see to the disposal of that crazy firebox and issue a citation before we all go up in flames some night.

Oh. Here’s Carrie Ann Bass’ car. It has no rear plate. Hasn’t for months.  She’s always trundling about in it. The front plate is FVK1613, if anyone’s interested.

How To Bully A Bully: Blogger Linda Kaidan v. Gang Thug Chandler Seelbach

An earlier version misidentified Chandler Seelbach and omitted reference to his violent criminal history. 

Chandler Zachardy trespasing as he menaces Linda Kaida in her driveway.
Chandler Seelbach trespassing as he menaces Linda Kaidan in her driveway.

How to treat a bully? Stand fast and bully back.

Herkimer Post Editor Linda Kaidan, my wife of 43 years, is an early riser. She puts out food for her beloved birds’ breakfast in front of our lovely 100-year-old house at Herkimer’s 330 Pleasant Avenue.

Last Thursday 11/29, at about 4 am, she was taking out the trash when she was harassed and menaced by the local gang’s latest sacrificial drug thug, young Herkimer dad Chandler Z. Seelbach. Seelbach emerged from his friend fellow drug thug Kyle Stone’s house at 332 Pleasant Avenue and immediately started in on Linda. Seelbach is a violent criminal well-known to local police, yet still walking the streets through the miracle of New York law.

His face inches from hers, Seelbach verbally assaulted her for about 8 minutes, heaping her with obscenities, threatening several times to “beat the shit” out of her as he trespassed on our property. She stood her ground and only came inside when she was good and ready. (He doesn’t seem to know who his mother is.)

Here’s the audio and a porch video of the attack. Though Linda was on four cameras, the only one with audio is the porch cam. The police have a full video of the incident; the audio is enough to convict. Several still shots from one of our videos are in this post. (The woman cheering Seelbach on is our neighbor, drug thug Kim Vargas.)  Turn on the volume.

Our local drug and child trafficking gang doesn’t like our very legal gentle street light it lessens their use of the two gang houses on the other side of our property for nighttime drug trafficking. Including Seelbach’s. 

For his finale, Seelbach threw a dramatic haymaker at our doughty little light. As with all else in his pathetic young life, Seelbach failed, and went off to where he lays his head, landlord Jay Smith’s 326 Pleasant Avenue, two houses down. form ours. 

The woman loudly supporting the elder-abusing thug is another elder-abusing thug, neighboring petty drug dealer Kim Vargas, skulking off-camera in her driveway.

“Seelbach then threw a dramatic haymaker punch at our light.”
“As with all else in his pathetic young life, Chandler failed…”

This latest ugly incident, with videos, was reported to Officer Burns of the Herkimer Police, who took and registered Linda’s complaint. Burns was one of the many officers who were very supportive when Linda was attacked and punched out by the Joyce Barton gang’s Shianne Hill a few years ago. (Shianne was sentenced to a year’s probation and restitution. The Bartons have been stripped of the illusion that they enjoy immunity from arrest within the village of Herkimer.)

Chandler Seelbach’s vile street skit is the latest of the Herkimer gang’s desperate final gasps. Gone are Zachary’s predecessors, Kyle Stone and Xavier Rowe. And Smith tenant Earl Thompson, who was always vowing to put anthrax in our mailbox. MIA from our patch of paradise for years now is gang chieftain Stanley Sykes. Present but mute is street harasser and child trafficker Cary Ann Bass, Sykes alleged daughter-in-law. Still seen about is Shyke’s good right hand Kevin Stone, who has open access to all the houses landlord Jay Smith’s gifted Herkimer’s drug and child traffickers one Christmas.

The rapidly improving demographics of Herkimer and all of Upstate New York is draining the swamp of organized criminal activity. The people now moving here in large numbers are affluent and seeking a climate change haven. Herkimer, to its surprise I’m sure, is one of the nation’s finest climate change survival zones.  

Herkimer doesn’t have much housing stock. Even halfway decent houses sell in a few days. Our nighttime skies are so filled with law enforcement drones that they must be filing flight plans. (We’ve seen some cute little prototype drones being tested  here.) 

When prosperity comes in, gangs move out, usually with the help from beefed-up law enforcement, and folks who no longer yield their streets to scum like Chandler Seelbach. Don’t be bullied. Stand your ground and bully back.

Better Camera Coming Soon to Driveway Hotspot

A much better camera for our front driveway has arrived. That’s where all the action’s been lately. It’s the same 4K UHD camera as the one we have out back, the one that was the heart of the popular post of Carrie Ann Bass’ party in the child trafficking lot. I’ll provision and hang it as soon as I finish my current project for my son-in-law. 

 

A Death In Herkimer

Hits: 486

Stephen Ames Berry

My wife Linda Kaidan delights in Herkimer’s abundant wildlife. Birds of all feathers and bold bushy squirrels have especially grown plump from her devotion. She feeds them daily from our driveway, our backyard sometimes being unsafe from nighttime poison gas attacks. The squirrels are very fond of black oiled sunflower seeds, the birds go for the good quality white bread.

Linda’s morning feeding time is well known–the unfriendly eyes of neighbors we’ve called out for drug and child trafficking surround us. The body dumped in our driveway from a passing car the other morning shouldn’t have surprised us:

The victim was a handsome gray squirrel with just a hint of red to his fur, his body still warm. He’d been killed by a perfect shot to the head at close range from a pellet gun.  Knowing Herkimer’s warped gang scum, he may have been lured close by his killer with treat for ease of execution and enjoyment of betrayal.

A sad small death in Herkimer: a handsome young squirrel killed by local gang filth and dumped in our driveway.

As intended, Linda was upset and buried Rocky, as we named him, in the backyard, which is covered by surveillance cameras.

Herkimer’s drug and child traffickers have a rich history of animal cruelty. It’s a pastime they’ve cultivated both for sadistic pleasure and as a means to intimidate those who call them out. When we moved to Herkimer eight years ago, someone shot several birds in our backyard, also with a pellet gun. After we buried them, someone dug up the bodies at night and left them on our back stairs. (And people wonder why we have all those cameras, lights and mics. )

Our dog Bear, an ancient Chow, was poisoned the day she arrived home from the animal shelter. She recovered, only to be constantly pelted with debris by weaponized gang kids from next door at Herkimer’s Historic Child Trafficking Hub (Jay Smith, landlord), seemingly a permanent gang sanctuary.

At night, Bear was blasted in her porous basement den by waves of volatilized pesticide from hand foggers, a standard regional gang weapon. (“Ya can’t prove nothin’!” Yeah, but the drones can. )

Bear is gone, casualty to years of our war to knife with Herkimer’s entrenched criminals. We were of an age, Bear and I. We used to hang out, share Subway Melts (extra extra bacon) and good Dutch beer. I miss Bear.

Who Killed Rocky Squirrel? Boris and Natasha?

Carrie Ann Bass Hosts Party At Herkimer’s Historic Child Trafficking Hub

Hits: 1961

Stephen Ames Berry

Herkimer’s Historic Child Trafficking lot was the venue for a June 5th child-centric party, hosted by Sykes’ Gang drug and child trafficker Carrie Ann Bass, aka Carrie Ann Collins Bass. The occasion appeared to be the birthday of Bass’ son Harvey, Stanley Skye’s grandson. (Harvey’s dad’s in prison for heroin trafficking and complicity in the death of a user.) This has become an annual Herkimer happening, signaled by a crew appearing at first light and erecting an inflatable siege tower next to our house.

Hostess Bass enjoyed a good turnout, with about 30 guests at its nighttime peak. Unlike previous gang parties in the child trafficking lot, this one lacked drug-addled mindwipes howling at the moon and the booming of obscene misogynistic music shaking nearby houses, mostly just the happy shrieking of kids permeating our living room into the wee hours. And some occasionally loud but not totally vile music emanating from parked cars, the volume carefully nuanced to drop just as we were calling the police. Some fireworks, but all legal and an illegal but modest fire bowl crackling away over on the Eureka Avenue side of the parking lot.

Harvey is older now and seemingly into other things—this year he didn’t vandalize our fence or wave parts of his anatomy at our cameras. Boy’s growing up. Great things soon await.

Among the attendees was Kyle (“I’m gonna sell crack until I die”) Stone, who now seems to live at Bass’ 341 Eureka Avenue.

Guests included gang members and neighbors. (But I repeat myself.) Among the attendees was Kyle (“I’m gonna sell crack until I die”) Stone, who now seems to live at Bass’ 341 Eureka Avenue, and a busy few drug runners arriving late, obvious by their bulging backpacks. Given that we weren’t blasted with volatilized pesticides the next morning, some of our resident poison gassers were also probably among the guests and partied late. Can’t say if anyone from drug thug Kim Vargas’ krew at 328 Pleasant Avenue or from the Joyce Barton’s granny-beating gang at 333 Pleasant Ave were in attendance, though Bass, Vargas and Barton have been seen socializing.

Herkimer gang head Stanley Sykes
Worrisomely absent this year was Harvey’s grandfather, gang leader Stanley Sykes, seen here harassing his blogging neighbors. We’d recently rejected his offer of $1,200. for our house.

Still worrisomely absent again this year was Utica gang chief Stanley Sykes, a self-proclaimed member of the Crips, memorable for offering us $1,200 for our house in the midst of a massive 2017-18 campaign of poison gas attacks on us. (Stanley is hard to miss.) And also Kyle Stone’s crack-selling chum, Xavier Rowe of 326 Pleasant Ave, both Herkimer native sons. Xavier might have been there—didn’t review all the 14 hours of footage.

The three houses of Herkimer’s Historic Child Trafficking Hub—332 and 334 Pleasant Avenue and Bass’ 341 Eureka Avenue, are a traffickers’ sanctuary, owned by landlord Jay Smith. His trafficking hub tenants appear to enjoy the worry-free status of a protected class within Herkimer. Smith’s long been rumored to be selling those three beauties through a land contract. If so, they haven’t closed yet and remain his malignant huckleberries.

Loyal viewers of our herkimerpost.com videos will note we filmed Carrie’s party on a new camera. We’re testing several streaming 4k HD POE cameras at various resolutions. The new generation of surveillance cameras are easily installed, record in MP4, require no decryption and can be monitored on any device from anywhere. And of keen interest to our neighbors, all have great audio. The winning camera model will supplement our hardwired CCTV cameras.

As a courtesy to our neighbors, I’ve posted a few hi-def pixs of the party, suitable for downloading and framing. Enjoy.

 

Drug Thug Kim Vargas Models TV Toss And Washer Drop Skills

Hits: 348

Stephen Ames Berry

Last Wednesday our neighbor, Herkimer drug thug Kim Vargas, demonstrated skills acquired through decades of deadbeatism. Called on to surrender her unpaid for rented TV and laundry equipment, Vargas, tenant of Ft. Plain landlord Joe Handy, flawlessly demonstrated the aerodynamic potential of a flatscreen TV, sending it soaring gracefully from the driveway of her 328 Pleasant Avenue driveway to land beside the Great Rentals pickup van. Vargas then delivered the coup de gras to the machine, chucking it into the van as the Great Rentals guys stood clear.

Not pressing their luck, the rental recovery crew called the Herkimer Police to aid in the recovery of their laundry equipment from mighty mini Vargas. After some off-camera discussion with officers, Vargas again showed off her well-honed vandalism skills, scoring a perfect ten-point washer drop onto the sidewalk. A neighbor kindly delivered an unharmed dryer to the van (not shown), ending that day’s performance. Rest assured, there will be more. Vargas is an unending source of entertainment.

Does Kim Vargas have a sugar daddy? She couldn’t afford the equipment rental fees, yet someone’s paying for those FedEx Ground packages she gets day after day, week after week.

“Jews Telling People What To Do!” Kim Vargas’ Brother-in-Law, Thug Vargas, Moves On

Hits: 482

Stephen Ames Berry

Thursday, 3/18, gave a brief glimpse of the simmering conflict between Herkimer’s entrenched gang families, their combat-seasoned neighbors, and the Herkimer community’s desire to see drug and child trafficking gone. Its focal point was the angry departure of Thug Vargas from 328 Pleasant Ave. Thug is the brother-in-law of our immediate neighbor Kim Vargas, who we’ve outed for drug trafficking and neighbor harassment. Don’t know his first name, but Thug is appropriate. (Surely there’s a warrant out somewhere on this guy?)

At 12:24 pm we heard enraged males shouting incoherently, off-camera, from the direction of the Vargas’ driveway. It’s next to landlord Jay Smith’s 326 1/2 Pleasant Avenue, aka The Drunks’ House.  The loudest voice sounded like Kim Vargas’ brother-in-law, Thug Vargas—we know his voice from the Vargases’ threats and harassment. (“Kick your teeth down your throat.” I was trimming my yard.)

“We waited, but no pitchforks-and-torches mob descended on us…

Our indefatigable resident Jew popped outside for a moment as the angry shouting continued. “Some guy screamed ‘…Jews telling people what to do!” she reported. I pulled the audio feed. Couldn’t distinguish much from amid the berserk male voices. I may have heard “scum” repeated a few times. We waited, but no pitchforks-and-torches mob descended on us, for which we thank the well-known synergy between our surveillance cameras and law enforcement.

12:26 pm (0.01-0.17) Thug Vargas gets into U-Haul and drives off. Haven’t seen him since.

12:29 – 12:32 pm (0.18-1:10) Two Herkimer Police officers visit with the Vargases. (We didn’t call them. Our thanks to whoever did.)

1: 55pm – 2:04 pm (01:14-end)  In the tradition of Jew gassing… I was out on an errand. Our driveway was clean when I left and filled with the usual pesticide when I returned. Only two vehicles passed in that brief time. One was neighbor Joyce Barton’s (333 Pleasant) gray car, the other an unfamiliar pickup truck. Over the years we’ve documented the drug-dealing Bartons’ rich history of harassment, assault and poison gassing of us.

With the weather turning nice we expect some of our murderous band of neighbors will try to resume their traditional Spring harassment and poisoning offensive. (Year eight.) In the past, we’ve overheard that our child trafficking and drug trafficking videos “hurt a lot of families”.

Herkimer Folks Not A Pack of Rabid Bigots

Note to new readers: We’ve been getting thousands of views per month from ip addresses across the US. Except for our child trafficking series, this is unusual for us. We assume many are from people looking to relocate. Underway now seems to be the start of the largest mass migration since the fall of the Roman Empire. Certainly, any decent real estate in our village is sold almost the instant its listed. License plates from coastal states and as far way as Alaska, California,and Nevada have been spotted in the Walmart parking lot.

About those Devolved Humans In Our Videos

The devolved humans on our street and in our videos aren’t reflective of Herkimer as a whole. Pleasant Avenue has long a gang street, and we’re ringed by the several houses still occupied by gang members, dug in like ticks.

Kyle Stone performs
Herkimer’s post child of a devolved human: Our neighbor Kyle “Gonna sell crack until I die” Stone, 328 Pleasant Avenue

It’s become obvious that the wholesale drug and child trafficking reported here has sharply declined. Regional and federal law enforcement have eyes in the skies and boots on the ground, and we quickly post about evildoing. Backed by the state police, the Herkimer PD has stepped up and respond speedily and effectively.  Herkimer and all of Upstate New York are an area in transition.

Much of the property here in south Herkimer village is in sound shape, with spacious, sturdy 19th-century homes built by the master carpenters of the vanished Herkimer Standard Desk Company. They’re underpriced and in the most flood-safe part of the village, neighborhoods protected by a network of well-maintained dykes.

Kim Vargas’ Absurd Erection – Joe Handy, Landlord

Hits: 691

by Stephen Ames Berry

Herkimer's Kim Vargas protesting to village officials about security lights and cameras that have outed her drug trafficking
Backdropped by her absurd tent that’s blighting the street, Kim Vargas protests our cameras to Village code officers. They were responding to our call about the tent. Our cameras and lights have curtailed her krew’s drug trafficking.

Here’s a short video of Kim Vargas’ absurd erection rising high. Kim Vargas is the latest in a succession of gang thugs barracked next door at Herkimer’s 328 Pleasant Avenue, owned by Joe Handy of Ft. Plain. She’s lofting this tent in response to our many videos and blog postings outing her and her krew’s wholesale drug trafficking, gang member hosting, neighbor poisoning, elder menacing and overall depraved rottenness.  She’s been a busy girl since moving in 6 months ago.

The obvious intent of this ungainly structure is to block one of our surveillance  cameras from viewing the opioid hustling out of Vargas’ busy driveway and porch. 

Vargas supervised her krew of family and friends as they laboriously and ineptly erected that pavilion tent. It took 6 of them 4 hours to get it up; it only has one full side. I sped up the video; no need for us all to suffer.

Competent, sober friends who probably have a work ethic had to finish up for the Vargases. The intent of the tent, masquerading as a Halloween shrine,  is to block our surveillance cameras from doing what they’ve done–capturing and curtailing the Vargases and their allied neighbors’ at 331 Pleasant Avenue’s activities by exposing them to public and law enforcement scrutiny. Sunlight is the best disinfectant as Mr. Justice Brandeis reminds us. It works.

Kim Vargas’ Absurd Erection -Video Timeline

0:01 -0:44 The tent goes up.

0:45 to End — Kim Vargis hosts village building code inspectors. I asked them to come by. That thing is just so in violation of Local Law 3. The most immediate issue is that we can’t see the street or sidewalk on one side while pulling out of our driveway. Lots of small kids, many of them from the Vargases’ house, often dart by on the sidewalk, low to the ground. Indeed, pulling out the day of this video, I almost collided with the code officers’ vehicle. They made Vargas open a part of the side for safe sidewalk and street viewing. Hopefully there’s enough visibility for me to not crush someone. 

We’ve been told that the tent is an impermanent structure and won’t be allowed to become permanent. Obviously, we can still see who comes and goes from the Vargeses’ and their neighbors. After 6 years on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue, we’ve become adept at spotting and calling out gang activity and will continue doing so.

Kim Vargas is seen here complaining about our cameras and lighting. She and her krew moved in in April. The cameras have been here for three years. Who rents next to a house with 25 cameras if they don’t want to be videoed? Someone who’s paid to, that’s who.

Our parent organization, The Herkimer Post, is considering buying a quiet little camera drone and streaming area footage live. Those drones have grown more reliable and less expensive. Time to improve our game.

 

Kim Vargas’ Gang Poisons Neighbor’s Crop, Gets Free Food – Joe Handy, Landlord

Herkimer Gang Poisons Crops
Concerned friend watches helplessly as poisoned squash suffers inedibility.

It’s harvest time here in Upstate New York. Pumpkins and apple cider, squashes and fall festivals, game suppers and Halloween. The leaves are turning and the crisp mountain air off the Adirondacks is like ambrosia. There are people out West who’d kill for a breath of our air. Compared to much of the nation, we’re pretty well off so far: Covid-19 infections are low, home sales are up, industry’s moving in. No drastic budget cuts yet. Much to give thanks for.

Here in our pastoral village of Herkimer, the community continues its good-hearted sharing of its abundance with our drug gang neighbors, notably the Kim Vargas gang, routinely delivering them free food, with the good stuff packed in ice.

“It’s obscene that in a time of national pandemic, hunger and growing homelessness, Herkimer continues to coddle its criminals.”

As we’ve noted before, throughout the spring and summer, our backyard was blasted with volatilized pesticide from the Vargases’ yard. Below is a video of a kind gentleman delivering food to the Vargases and to the drug trafficking gang on the other side of us, landlord Jay Smith’s Kyle Stone gang. The young gang guy taking the food boxes is Xavier Rowe. This is the most work I’ve ever seen Xavier do. Kyle himself makes a cameo appearance, carrying a box of Dunkin Donuts.

After that portion of the video, there’s an older clip of Joyce Barton of the Joyce Barton Gang delivering foodbank boxes to the Kyle Stones and some of her other neighbors before scooting into her house at 333 Pleasant Avenue with her own food. Photos of our poisoned crops and plantings are at the end.

Our Herkimer gangs are happily nested here, and why not? It’s been the good life for them for the long decades in which Upstate New York was the poor country cousin of Downsate. Supportive landlords give them sanctuary, and the community and the state of New York provide them SNAP and cash assistance, fuel subsidies, utilities’ help, top of the line Medicaid coverage and a world class Medicaid dental insurance. And all amid the comfort of extended family networks.

“Only New York would put up with these destructive social parasites. They traffic poison and poison their neighbors.”

We’re close to shopping and astride major transportation routes and near magnificent recreational areas. (Herkimer’s drug and child traffickers vacation throughout the summer; we’ve heard some chat about their camps in the hills.) Why ever would they move? Heck, I wouldn’t. Only New York would put up with these destructive social parasites. They traffic poison and poison their neighbors.  In Florida, where we moved from, they’d be lucky to be merely homeless or in jail. And of course Herkimer’s gangs have long driven out many who opposed their domination of ours and other streets. 

Herkimer Becoming A Refuge Amid Pandemic And Climate Relocation

Times are rapidly changing: the area’s becoming a relocation mecca for its climate stability. Nice houses here get snapped up as soon as they hit the MLS. Rents are absurd. Drive the village streets; longtime residents and newcomers are busily fixing up their houses. Look at the out-of-state license plates in the Walmart parking lot: California, Texas, North Carolina, Florida. Many are on upscale German imports. There’s money behind this. Two recent examples–artisans replacing a slate roof on one of the long neglected grand old homes in north Herkimer. Slate. (!) While down the street at another house, about an acre of brick exterior was being carefully repointed and cleaned.

“History may mark this time as the beginning of the largest mass migration since the fall of Rome.” 

This isn’t a casual movement of a few, it’s a significant change in human geography in response to global crisis.  History may mark this time as the beginning of the largest mass migration since the fall of Rome.  A lot of  people are coming here and they all need homes. Boomtimes banishes gangs as property values soar and slumlords send their tenants packing and sellout. Yes, even on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue. We saw it in Boston and we’re seeing it here, though the transition is much faster. There’s no room for gangs in this new world.

Joe Handy’s Herkimer Drug House follows from Joe Handy’s Herkimer Thug House. Thug House showed the criminal history of Joe Handy’s 328 Pleasant Avenue as a point of sale for narcotics and possible child trafficking. It speculated on the possible relationship of Handy to previous owner Harriett Tangorra tenant Curtis Doolen, aka Curtis Cool, and the gang of which Doolen’s the most visible member. Through videos, Thug House showed the thuggish behavior of Joe Handy’s latest tenants, the Kim Vargas family, as they harassed and threatened their elderly neighbors. 

Thuggish Behavior Marks Herkimer Drug and Child Traffickers

“Our Herkimer gangs are deeply inbred, part of an extended kinship network — members all know each other, and are often though not obviously related by blood or de facto marriage.”

In our six years of hard-won experience with Herkimer’s gangs, they’ve taught us that threats and harassment are how they dispose of neighbors who might out their drug and child trafficking. If that doesn’t work, poison gas attacks soon follow. We’ve been subjected to all three since Herkimer’s Kim Vargas and her family moved in next door to Joe Handy’s a few short months ago. The drug trafficking started soon after they arrived and grew, as did the Vargas’ prosperity.  

Below are  videos of Kim Vargas and family trafficking from Joe Handy’s Herkimer Drug House. The clips record a day or two’s trafficking in June by car and backpack. There’s also a video of the Vargases networking with the street’s several drug trafficking gangs. 

Here’s the link to a video containing all three videos. It’s long, and probably won’t be fully viewed except by those paid to do so. Full descriptions for all videos are also on Herkimer Post’s YouTube channel.

Videos of Trafficking From Joe Handy’s Herkimer Drug House

Vargas Backpack Drug Trafficking 328 Pleasant Avenue Herkimer

In the world of Herkimer gangs, children are a multi-purpose resource. We’ve seen gang family kids pimped, used as harassers and drug couriers. We’ve watched Herkimer’s gang families traffic other peoples’ young children like lambs to the slaughter.
The Kim Vargas’ family are typical, the kids doing as told, for the family. Both Joel Vargas Jr. (tall teen, hair queue) and his presumed younger sibling, aka Little Vargas, can be seen delivering product out of landlord Joe Handy’s 328 Pleasant on any given day. This is what it looks like.
It’s obvious Kim Vargas and her drug trafficking family krew are closely allied with 331 Pleasant Avenue, across the street from them: watch as Joel Vargas Jr takes a bunch of the backpacks from Kim Vargas’ 328 Pleasant Avenue over go to 331’s white pickup truck — 1:04 minutes.

3:00 – 3:22 Crime Pays – FedEx Ground dropping off big packages at Kim Vargas’. Again, just a sample — I’ve missed a lot of these deliveries. (What’s in those huge light boxes? Fresh backpacks?)

Miscellaneous – What with NY’s catch-and-release bail reform and Covid-19 compassionate jail releases, Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue’s become a bustling drug backpackers’ byway – there are a few clips in here of non-Vargas drug mules transiting the street. And there’s the usual trafficking out of landlord Jay Smith’s 326 1/2 Pleasant Avenue, next to Kim Vargas – Joe Handy’s 328 Pleasant.  Jay Smith’s longtime tenant at 326 1/2 is Shawn Thompson (“Shawn of the Shuffling Dead”), last heard telling Kim Vargas that he’d be putting anthrax in our mailbox. (Probably not a Walmart item.)

Kim Vargas Car Drug Trafficking 328 Pleasant Avenue Herkimer

When Herkimer’s Kim Vargas and her family moved into landlord Joe Handy’s 328 Pleasant Avenue a few months ago, they didn’t have a working car. The doughty Kim Vargas began trafficking by battery-powered ATV, possibly inspired by example of her friend and possible relative, Curtis Doolen, aka Curtis Cool. (0:01-0:15 mins) Curtis trafficked for years out of 328 Pleasant Avenue.) Kim Vargas’ ATV soon paid for itself—she got herself a car and put it right to work. Here’s a day’s car trafficking out of 328 Pleasant. Mostly Kim Vargas, though older son Joel Vargas Jr. (tall teen, hair queue) sometimes takes the wheel.

I counted 10 quick roundtrips that day, but I may have missed a few. It was a typical trafficking day at the Vargases. Sometimes its solo trips, sometimes runs to drop off or retrieve backpackers,. There’s a stop at what seems to be an allied trafficking property near the King Street end of Pleasant Avenue, 307 Pleasant Avenue. (1:40 mins). What appears to be the white pickup truck from 331 Pleasant is parked there. (Our herkimprost.com camera drone is down for repair.)

The Kim Vargas family works closely with folks out of 331 Pleasant. (See our Vargas’ Backpack Trafficking video.) Some of Kyle Stone’s drug running krew from landlord Jay Smith’s 332 Pleasant Avenue are also in and out of that house near the end of Pleasant Avenue, as is drug trafficker Alexis Rowe. (Alexis was among the trafficking lot at 328 Pleasant, rented to them by Joe Handy before the Kim Vargas moved in.)

Kim Vargas Drug Gang Networking 328 Pleasant Avenue Herkimer

“All are from the street’s drug trafficking houses, a cluster of 1900’s homes mid-Pleasant Avenue: 328 (Vargas – landlord Joe Handy), 332 (Stone – landlord Jay Smith) and 331 (unknown tenants – landlord Hoover Greece LLC ).”

Our Herkimer gangs are deeply inbred, part of an extended kinship network — members all know each other, and are often though not obviously related by blood or de facto marriage.

These are a few clips of one of the Kim Vargases networking with some of Pleasant Avenue’s other drug gangers. All are from the street’s drug trafficking houses, a cluster of 1900’s homes mid-Pleasant Avenue: 328 (Vargas – landlord Joe Handy), 332 (Stone – landlord Jay Smith) and 331 (unknown tenants – landlord Hoover Greece LLC ).

01:55 Driver of blue car from 331 Pleasant goes to 328, then meets with Xavier Rowe of Kyle Stone’s drug trafficking gang (2:28). That remarkably shiny car makes the rounds of the village day and night.
3:06 Kyle Stone, Xavier Rowe and Kim Vargas’s putative brother-in-law, aka Thug Vargas, in front of Kim Vargas’ 328 Pleasant.
4:53 They’re joined by the white pickup truck from 331 Pleasant. White pickup often seen working with the Kim Vargas and krew, moving backpacks here and there. (See our Vargas’ backpacking video.)

Real Estate Tsunami Will Soon Purge Herkimer’s Gangs From Their Cribs

Prosperity washes away gangs. There’s a real estate sales tsumani roaring down on Upstate NY as people from all over the US seek safe havens from the pandemic and accelerating climate change. This area has proven to be one of the safest in the US from both threats and a good buy. Our constant monitoring of  real estate sales and sold prices shows a wave of affluent buyers and cutting edge business relocating to northern New York.

Landlords like Joe Handy and Jay Smith will be seeing offers they can’t refuse, or that their families won’t let them refuse. Herkimer’s gangs will be sent packing and those lovely old village homes they occupy will be sold, restored and improved. Perhaps I can then go finish writing that novel I started seven years ago.
