As part of 'Operation Room Service," seven vans were taken off of city streets.
The vans were parked on the street in the East Village and in Chelsea and all had New Jersey license plates.
Their owners are accused of "a variety of alleged offenses."
Investigators were tipped off in part by a YouTube video review of one of the vans.
