Village of Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) - Police seize $22,000-worth of heroin in the Village of Endicott.

Two arrests were made at 312 Roosevelt Avenue late this morning.

It comes after a two month investigation.

Police say 21-year-old Jamie Young and 28-year-old Hector Estrada were both living in the apartment and selling the heroin.

Investigators found a large amount of heroin, $8,000 in cash, and seven illegal firearms in the apartment.

"We can't speculate on what they were going to use them for, but the fact that you're putting drugs with weapons together, and in this case, $8,000, it's not good," said Lieutenance Patrick Garey of the Community Narcotics Enforcement Team.

Young and Estrada are charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

They were arraigned in Town of Union Court and sent to Broome County Jail without bail.
