Acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park announced the results of the yearlong investigation Tuesday.

The investigation initially focused on a location in Linden, but branched out to other sites there and in Rahway, Elizabeth, Bloomfield and Newark. One of the Linden locations allegedly housed a heroin mill, complete with a video surveillance system.

Authorities said they seized cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, counterfeit Viagra and MDMA — known as “molly” — at the different locations as well as 10,000 units of prescription pills. They also seized more than $100,000 in cash, two handguns and four vehicles.

The street value of the drugs was estimated at more than $500,000.
