THE BRONX -

The DEA says it seized over $5 million worth of heroin earlier this week, and the suspects have been arrested.

They say the drugs were found during two car stops on Tuesday and Wednesday on Wallace Avenue inside a shopping bag and a suitcase.

Investigators say they searched an apartment in the same area and found more heroin, as well as packing materials.

Three people are facing charges. They've been identified as Amaury Lora-Grullon, Joseph Medina-Hidalgo and Luis Carmona-Illarraza.
