ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York authorities say they have charged 27 people with operating two drug distribution rings.

The Attorney General’s Office, State Police and Albany Police report seizing more than two pounds of heroin, one pound of cocaine, 1,000 Oxycodone pills, two shotguns, one handgun and $21,000 in the yearlong investigation.

They say one group of at least six people was sending cocaine from New York City to Albany for sale there.

The second group, involving at least 21 people, was sending heroin, cocaine and illegal prescription medications from New York City to Albany, then distributing it around the greater Albany area, the Catskills region, Maine and Pennsylvania.

Three people charged as major traffickers are from the Bronx and Brooklyn.

Most of the others are from the Albany area.
