Drug abuse has been a growing problem in New Jersey, but authorities in Paterson slowed it down a lot over the weekend.

A joint investigation between the New Jersey State Police, Passaic Country Sheriffs Office, and the Drug Enforcement Agency’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force led to a major drug bust in Paterson.

UPI.com reported that police took hollow point bullets, semi-automatic handguns, more than 300 bricks of heroin, and $20,000 in cash. Two suspected heroin mills were taken down in the investigation, and six people were arrested.
