BOERUM HILL — Three people were arrested in a Boerum Hill apartment today after police executed a search warrant Thursday morning and found heroin and drug paraphernalia in the apartment.
Intelligence officers from the 76th Precinct worked with investigators from the Brooklyn South Narcotics Unit to gather enough evidence to obtain a search warrant at a third-floor apartment located at 198 Bond St., pinning a 50-year-old Hispanic male for drug possession with the intent to sell.
During the time of search, the main suspect, a 50-year-old man, was away from the apartment but police found eight envelopes of heroin, a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia inside the home.
Police made calls to the suspect, but he refused to return to his apartment. The man’s 56-year-old wife, his 33-year-old stepson and his 17-year-old nephew wound up taking the rap and were arrested for possession of narcotics with intent to sell.
According to a police source, heroin has always been a problem in Boerum Hill and this particular address has been especially problematic.
