SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Springfield police have arrested more than 20 suspected drug dealers and confiscated nearly 7,200 bags of heroin in the area.

WWLP-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1WRUlaT ) police conducted several drug raids last week on Lebanon Street, White Street and other areas.

Authorities say police on Friday night raided what they called a “heroin distribution den,” finding more than 600 bags of heroin and other drugs. Police also recently seized more than eight pounds of cocaine.

Some of the suspects face charges including drug distribution and conspiracy to violate drug laws. Three people are expected to be arraigned Monday.
