LEWISTON — Police say seven people were arrested in a drug raid in Lewiston.

Authorities say they seized evidence of heroin and crack cocaine dealing from an apartment house that they saw has been the scene of three heroin overdoses this summer.

The Sun Journal reports that the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and local police have been watching the building for several months.

Authorities say they searched the home and found 33 prepackaged units of heroin and 21 bags of crack cocaine intended for distribution and about $2,000 in cash.

Police say six people from Lewiston, one from Auburn and one suspect from New York City were arrested on Thursday.
