The Franklin County District Attorney says police took down a large-scale heroin operation in Malone and Bombay Wednesday night, and seized heroin, marijuana, guns and cash.
Police arrested Randy Hart, 25, Chad Gilman, 22, both of Bombay, N.Y., and Angela Mulverhill, 30. Investigators say the suspects traveled to Massachusetts 20 times a month to get heroin to sell in northern New York. Police say the group sold an estimated $1.2 million of heroin in the area. All three are charged with criminal possession and intent to sell.
Police say the arrests are the culmination of a three-month investigation into the three suspects.
The New York State Police Special Operations Response Team, which helped in the raids, reports seeing a big increase in the number of people traveling to larger cities to get drugs to sell locally, and in people coming from bigger cities to sell drugs in the region.
