Police have seized millions of dollars in fentanyl laced heroin in the Bronx.

The major drug bust happened Wednesday inside of a Morrison Avenue home just after 11 p.m.

The New York Drug Enforcement Task Force executed a raid in which they turned up the illegal drugs with a street value of $7.5 million. 

At least five people were arrested in connection to the bust.

Investigators also recovered equipment used to package and distribute drugs.

They say the drugs were found behind a medicine cabinet in the bathroom of the apartment and were found to have names of the packaging that were branded “Death,” “Kill” and “Heartless”. 

Police say they had been running surveillance on the building and documented suspicious drug activity prior to making the bust.

A man was seen entering and exiting the building with a black colored bag which police say contained heroin.
