DEA Seizes $50 Million Worth Of Heroin In New York's Largest Bust Of All Time

______________________________________________________________

The Drug Enforcement Administration announced Tuesday that it has seized 154 pounds of heroin, worth $50 million, from a secret compartment in a vehicle in New York City, in addition to collaring two men believed to be running a massive drug ring along with a Mexican cartel.

It's the largest heroin seizure the state of New York has ever seen, and the fourth-largest ever in the United States, according to a DEA press release. Jose A. Mercedes (aka "Hippie") and Yenci Cruz Francisco were arrested Sunday in the Bronx after a yearlong investigation by DEA agents, New York City Police Department investigators and state police detectives.

"The $50 million street value of the heroin in this case is a conservative estimate. To put it in perspective, this load was so large it carried the potential of supplying a dose of heroin to every man, woman and child in New York City," DEA Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan said in the release. "While this important seizure stopped a huge amount of heroin from flooding our city, it also highlights the critical need to intercept heroin before it ever reaches our region."
