CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a two-month investigation in southern New Jersey led to the seizure of 182,000 bags of heroin worth more than $3.6 million.

Police in Cape May and Cumberland counties fanned out with search warrants on Wednesday and made 12 arrests.

Authorities charged two men with leading a drug trafficking network. Others were charged with conspiracy to distribute and possess a controlled dangerous substance.

Police recovered approximately $200,000 and one handgun.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing and searches are continuing.
