BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Police uncovered more than 1,900 envelopes of heroin and thousands of dollars in cash at a Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment, police officials announced Friday.
An investigation led officers to an apartment at 245 Throop Ave. near Myrtle and Vernon avenues on May 13 around 9 p.m., according to the NYPD.
Officers executed a search warrant and found 1,910 glassine envelopes of heroin with the stamp “Tap Out,” 35.15 grams of cocaine, and three ounces of marijuana, police said.
Officials also recovered $12,157 in cash and a .32-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver, according to the NYPD.
Rafael Nieves, 28, and Maria Villanueva, 39, who both live in the building, were arrested in the bust, police said.
Police were looking into Nieves in the initial investigation, according to an NYPD spokesman, and he faces charges including criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Nieves is being held on $7,500 bail or bond and is due back in court in November, according to court records.
Villanueva faces charges including criminal possession of a controlled substance and was released on her own recognizance, court records show. She is due back in court on July 14.
Attorney information for Nieves and Villanueva was not immediately available.
Officers also arrested Abreu Wilfri, of Bushwick, in connection to the incident.
During the search, a sergeant found 10 Ziploc bags of marijuana in Wilfri’s pocket, prosecutors said.
Wilfri faces charges of unlawful possession of marijuana, according to court records, and was released on his own recognizance. He is set to return to court on June 2.
An attorney for Wilfri declined to comment.
