Drug dealers in the Bronx and Manhattan have been masquerading as Uber drivers -complete with fake stickers and equipment- in order to blend in while they make their deliveries, according to the NYPD.

The vehicles displayed the logos and equipment in such a way that they were indistinguishable from real Uber cars.

Four individuals were busted by the DEA on Tuesday for pretending to be Uber drivers while they underwent their smuggling and distribution operations- namely heroin and cocaine.

The faux Uber drug ring reportedly had over 100 customers and were caught with $22,000 in cash and over a kilogram of cocaine, with police seizing five vehicles in all.

According to the New York Post, two other drug dealers were busted last week and one had his bail set at $150,000.
