An estimated $20 million worth of heroin was seized from an apartment in Richmond Hill, Queens on Thursday.
Drug Enforcement Administration agents uncovered what they say was a heroin distribution center on 122nd Street, confiscating 86 pounds of heroin during the search.
DEA officials say it was the second-largest heroin bust in the city in the past seven years.
Sources tell NY1 that the amount seized was so massive it would be enough to give every person in MetLife Stadium five bags of the drug.
Officials say 44-year-old Jose Santiago Diaz was arrested in connection with the distribution center. They believe he worked there.
Diaz is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
