Three men were arrested and large quantities of drugs were seized in a raid at a Park Avenue apartment building, said police director Jerry Speziale on Wednesday morning.

Police seized 7,600 glassines of heroin, 410 Ecstasy pills, and 45 baggies of crack-coacine. The director said police also confiscated 300 grams of raw heroin, 2 knotted containing 83 grams of crack-cocaine, 6 baggies or 206 grams of cocaine.

45 baggies of marijuana was also seized, said the director. Police arrested city residents Rafael E. Collazo, 43, of Park Avenue; William Hodges, 36, of East 18th Street; and Edward Infante, 38, of Brooklyn, NY.

Infante has been charged with 17 drug offenses. Among them maintaining a drug production facility and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Edward and Hodges were charged with three drug offenses. Speziale said police took $1,489 in drug money from Collazo. $502 was taken from Edward and $187 from Hodges.

Police raided 217 Park Avenue at 8:34 p.m. on Tuesday. Police learned about the spot in the course of investigating drug dealing in the vicinity of Park Ave and East 18th Street.

‚ÄúThis is a significant raid, which continues to dismantle and disrupt illegal drug sales and the organizations responsible for the distribution,” said Speziale.

    now others will fight and die to take their place…

    The cops bring the drugs into the City, so Speziale will have to get 3 other people to sell his drugs.
