Police uncover heroin lab in the Bronx

Police say they uncovered a drug lab Saturday night during a home invasion investigation.

Police say a woman on Saint Lawrence Avenue alerted authorities after hearing noises on her neighbor?s roof. Investigators say when they arrived on the scene, they discovered large amounts of heroin and four people lying face down in handcuffs.

The four handcuffed individuals and the suspect, who was jumping from roof to roof, have been arrested for drug possession. Police say it is still uncertain who initially handcuffed the four perpetrators and for what reason.
