PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - State police say six men face drug and weapons offenses after authorities dismantled heroin mills in a northern New Jersey community.

The arrests came during two traffic stops and the search of two homes in Paterson last weekend.

Two Paterson residents - 22-year-old Juan Perez Guerrero and his passenger, 23-year-old Alexander Padro - were arrested after a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in Saddle Brook Township. Troopers allegedly found materials consistent with packaging and selling heroin.

In a separate stop on the same highway in Hackensack, authorities say 29-year-old Paterson resident Manuel Perez-Guerrero and his passenger, Lakey Guerra-Pujols of Oakfield, N.Y., had heroin and hollow point bullets in a hidden compartment.

More drugs and weapons were found during searches of the two homes, where two more Paterson men were arrested.
