DEA: 5 arrested for running fentanyl, heroin mill out of Ardsley home

ARDSLEY -

Drug enforcement officers uncovered an elaborate heroin and fentanyl mill operating out of a home in Ardsley, officials say.

The DEA's Tactical Diversion Squad and the Greenburgh Task Force executed a search warrant at 129 Euclid Ave. Friday morning. Investigators found 6 kilos of heroin and 5 kilos of fentanyl. Authorities say the fentanyl alone has enough potency to kill early 2 million people.

Authorities say the arrests are the result of a quick and efficient investigation.

Officers spent the morning dismantling the mill and had an ambulance on standby for officer safety.

Neighbors who say Euclid Avenue is a quiet block were shocked by the news. However, they say they did notice cars coming and going.

News 12 is told that three of the five suspects, Braulio Mata, Jose Garcia and Yarly Mendoza-Delorbe, were living at the house.

The five face charges ranging from conspiracy and possession of heroin and fentanyl to resisting arrest.
