Police have arrested two men in connection with a string of robberies and murders of men who were picked up at bars in NYC.Kenwood Allen, 33, and another unnamed man were arrested and charged with the drug-induced deaths of two men, although police said more charges are expected as their investigation continued.Police alleged the two men were part of a crew who drugged and then robbed unsuspecting men after they had left various Manhattan bars beginning in March of this year, according to a report in the New York Post.Allen was charged with the March 18 death of Nurbo Shera and the July 30 death of Ardijan Berisha.

At least 24 other men have been drugged and robbed, and sometimes killed, under similar circumstances, and police have long suspected a crew was targeting inebriated bar-goers in the area.“They target their victims leaving bars, offering drugs in some cases, then either through force or when the victim passes out, they remove jewelry, money, high-end watches and phones from their victims,” James Essig, NYPD chief of detectives, said at a press briefing announcing the arrests.Allen was officially charged with two counts of second-degree murder, three counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of second-degree robbery, and two counts of second-degree assault.The unsolved murders of two gay men suspected of falling prey to the same crew made headlines last month when the mother of one of the victims, Linda Clary, accused Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg of dragging his feet in bringing the murderers of her son, John Umberger, to justice.“I can’t be quiet anymore.
