Federal drug agents raided a ground floor apartment in the Richmond Hills section of Queens, New York this week, uncovering a heroin distribution den with a heroin stash worth $20 million.
The Drug Enforcement Administration’s New York Organized Crime Drug enforcement Strike Force was watching the apartment on 122nd Street for weeks before they made their move.

After midnight Wednesday morning, Jose Santiago Diaz, 44, left the apartment, with keys to it, and distinctly smelled like heroin.

After obtaining a search warrant Wednesday afternoon, DEA agents raided the apartment and discovered a whopping 86 pounds of heroin including eight packages of pressed heroin, each weighing a kilogram, lying on the floor.

Another 11 packages were found inside a duffel bag.

Investigators also found a “makeshift assembly line had been set up on a table, complete with kilo presses and multiple buckets containing grinders, sifters and other paraphernalia,” according to a joint statement by the DEA, NYPD, FBI and the city’s Special Narcotics Prosecutor.

Another 22 pounds of loose heroin was on the table, along with brown sugar used to cut it.

Diaz, of The Bronx, was identified as an illegal alien who was previously deported to the Dominican Republic. He is being charged with criminal drug possession and other charges.
