A pair of male model roommates participated in a lucrative cocaine delivery service from a Chelsea apartment that doubled as a drug den, prosecutors said Friday.
Christopher Wetmore, 25, and Joseph Denormandie, 20, have been charged with conspiracy and drug sale charges in a felony complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court.
Prosecutors said the pretty pair are part of a bigger probe into a drug delivery service based in Manhattan.
In their alleged dealings, the models promised an undercover cop that the $2,500 in drugs they were selling him had been vetted by a chemist for purity.
Denormandie’s lawyer, Matthew Myers, said his client has a clean record and argued for reduced bail. “He comes from a stable family, apparently has some drug issues and he’s working presently as a model for an agency,” Denormandie’s lawyer Matthew Myers informed the court.
Judge Robert Mandelbaum held Denormandie held on $100,000 bond or cash. Wetmore was being held on $300,000 bond.
