Caught on tape
Mubarak was responsible for a large organization and employed multiple lower-level co-conspirators as part of his distribution network. Recordings obtained during the course of the investigation captured Mubarak describing the scope and extent of his drug trafficking operation.
A cooperating witness made over 20 recorded purchases of fentanyl, heroin and cocaine from subordinates of Mubarak. Mubarak also discussed employing the cooperating witness as a distributor and explained the business in detail.
Shooting a suspected thief in the back
Additionally, Mubarak was captured on a recording discussing a 2017 shooting incident where he targeted a former co-conspirator because he believed the man had stolen his organization’s drug money. Mubarak explained that the individual was transporting cash through Logan airport on behalf of Mubarak’s group and that he claimed that the money was seized by police, which was in fact true.
When the man failed to provide satisfactory proof of the seizure, Mubarak stated on recording that he located him and shot him. Police and medical records showed that the man was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his back.
