ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities in New York state have made a record drug bust, seizing 33 kilograms of heroin and 2 kilograms of fentanyl.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and the New York State Police announced the action Friday. Schneiderman’s office says the seizure is the largest ever in the 46-year history of New York’s Organized Crime Task Force.

The investigation was called “Operation Dirty Dope” and led to the disruption of what Schneiderman’s office calls an alleged national heroin smuggling ring.

Twenty-five individuals living in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Arizona and New Jersey have been indicted in connection with the case.

Schneiderman, a Democrat, plans to detail the operation at a press conference Friday.
