His fascination with drugs brought him wealth- at his first major bust, he stole stacks of $100 bills. By 1987, in Brooklyns crime-ridden East New York, Dowds elaborate system of bribery and extortion was providing shelter to local Dominican drug lords, and netting him upwards of $15,000 per week. He became the kingpin of the Losers Club, a band of dirty cops who gathered by night at the shore of Jamaica Bay to drink, shoot their guns into the air, and plan illegal drug shakedowns. And in 1991 Dowd and his crew began to deal stolen cocaine to suburban Long Island kids too afraid to venture into Brooklyn to buy it themselves.
