Feds Seize Enough Heroin To Get Everyone In NYC High

The DEA confiscated 155 pounds of heroin in a quiet, residential section of the Bronx on Sunday, one of the largest narcotics seizures in the city’s history.
Federal agents found the drugs when they raided an apartment on West 251st Street, across the street from Van Cortlandt Park and just a few blocks away from Horace Mann, a prestigious private school. During the raid, agents arrested Jose Mercedes and Yenci Cruz Francisco, each of whom faces one count of operating as a major drug trafficker, a felony charge that carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
