NEW YORK (AP) — Three men who authorities say stored $12 million worth of heroin and $500,000 in crystal meth inside hidden compartments within two New York City apartments have been arrested and charged, officials said Wednesday.

Pablo Paulino, 36; Pedro Abreu, 55; and Janeison Garcia, 28, were arrested Monday after law enforcement agents raided the apartments in Manhattan’s Washington Heights neighborhood, a spot designed to give the men easy access to the George Washington Bridge and, with it, travel throughout the region, authorities said.

The drugs were intended for distribution in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and other locations, according to authorities.
