THE BRONX - The NYPD has busted a major drug ring with connections to the Bronx.

In what police called "Operation Rebound," 11 people were arrested, including six of them from the borough.

Authorities confiscated a stash of guns, cocaine and money in the sting.

Investigators say the drugs came from Puerto Rico, and that a wiretap revealed the alleged ring leader made multiple trips to the island since 2011.
