The northeast leader of the notorious MS-13 street gang was charged Thursday with directing murders and trafficking loads of heroin into the area, prosecutors said.

Miguel Angel Corea Diaz worked as the “regional director” for the violent Salvadoran gang’s operations out of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Sources said Diaz headed the so-called “Sailors” clique out of Long Island.

Diaz, who goes by the nickname “The Reaper,” was hauled into Nassau County Court following his arrest Thursday night in Maryland.

The beefy 35-year-old was among 17 high-ranking members and associates who were indicted on a laundry list of charges in January.

Gang members “had to get permission from [Diaz] to commit various crimes,” such as murder, and determined whether victims “should be strangled, stabbed or shot,” prosecutors said in court.

Sources said Diaz — who has addresses in Long Branch, New Jersey and Laurel, Maryland — also directed murders in Elizabeth, New Jersey and Prince George’s County in Maryland, which were thwarted by police.

Diaz, who reported directly to the head of MS-13 in El Salvador, allegedly trafficked 1,500 grams of heroin in the Bronx and Maryland and 1,000 grams in Texas, according to prosecutors.

He was nabbed via wiretap, authorities said.

Diaz pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and drug trafficking charges at his arraignment.

La Mara Salvatrucha — or MS-13 — has ravaged Long Island over the past decade and is responsible for dozens of murders across Suffolk and Nassau counties.

He faces life behind bars.

The fast-growing gang — whose motto is is “mata, viola, controla” — or “kill, rape, control” — has been so hard to control, Attorney General Jeff Session announced a crackdown in 2017, warning, “We are coming after you.”
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
