Authorities announced Monday the arrest of two alleged drug dealers and the confiscation of $11 million in heroin, cocaine and weapons.

A joint task force, including the DEA, NYPD, the city's special narcotics prosecutor and state police nabbed two men they said were responsible for supplying massive amounts of drugs throughout the northeast.

Authorities said the suspects were nabbed while making a delivery in Connecticut.

As a result, several locations in the Bronx were searched.

Officials say drugs and weapons were found.

Edualin Tapia and Guillermo Esteban are now charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy.
