NEW YORK, N.Y. (News 12 Westchester/CNN Newsource) - A fentanyl and heroin mill uncovered operating in a quiet Ardsley neighborhood Friday morning.
"I think they came into a quiet neighborhood and just figured this might be a safe place for them, but I guess not."
The DEA's tactical diversion squad and the Greenburgh task force executed a search warrant at a home on Euclid Ave.
Inside, investigators said they found 6 kilos of heroin and 5 kilos of fentanyl.
The fentanyl alone is potent enough to kill nearly 2 million people.
"It's shocking, it's shocking and kind of scary and awful all at the same time," said a neighbor.
Five people are now in custody and facing charges ranging from conspiracy and possession of heroin and fentanyl to resisting arrest.
Braulio Mata, Jose Garcia, and Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe lived at the house.
"I have been here for 11 years, nothing like that ever happened before."
Neighbors tell us that they didn't know their neighbors well but they said that they started renting the house a few months ago.
One resident told us that they did notice a lot of cars and coming and going but never suspected a large drug mill was operating on their street.
Authorities say a quick and efficient investigation led to the arrests.
