NY1 has learned more about actor Philip Seymour Hoffman's actions right before he was found dead in his Manhattan apartment Sunday.

A source says he took out $1,200 in separate withdrawals from a grocery store ATM near his West Village apartment.

The source also says Hoffman had two other people with him, a fact police are investigating.

The time of the withdrawal hasn't been released.

Hoffman's body was found with a needle in his arm, and police have been investigating his death as a possible overdose.

Law enforcement sources say there were dozens of bags of heroin in the apartment, along with cocaine, unused syringes, a charred spoon and various prescription drugs.

Investigators are now trying to track down the dealer who sold the drugs.

Sources say Hoffman was apparently mixing drugs to create a concoction known as a speed ball.

An autopsy was performed on Hoffman's body Monday.

The 46-year-old Oscar winner is survived by his partner of 15 years, Mimi O'Donnell, and their three children.

Broadway theaters are set to dim their lights in tribute to Hoffman Wednesday night.
