Providence public safety officials joined with John Arvantis, special agent in charge of the New England Field Division of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha to announce the largest heroin bust in Rhode Island history where 42 pounds (19 Kilos) of heroin valuing $4.5 million was seized.
Two men, Jorge Daniel Estrada, 21 of Providence, and Angel Feliz, 47 of Dorchester Mass., were apprehended. The men are suspected to be involved in a major interstate drug trafficking operation.
Authorities say they were able to bust the operation by having a person caught in possession of drugs to work for investigators undercover making drug purchases monitored by detectives.
