YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police seized an estimated $1.3 million in heroin and arrested three people during a drug bust in York.

Authorities said the unpackaged heroin and an estimated $10,000 in marijuana was seized during a search of 483 Salem Avenue.

Tens of thousands of bags used to package heroin, processing equipment, electronic scales and cash were also found in the home, police said.

Two people who lived in the house, 31-year-old Angel Barbosa and 32-year-old Julie Gonzalez-Morales, were arrested for possession with the intent to deliver heroin and criminal conspiracy, police said.

Barbosa's business partner, 36-year-old Junior Gonzalez, was arrested on the same charges after investigators seized cash and records from his home at 2708 Hunt Club Drive, police said.

Barbosa and Gonzalez operated J&J Auto Detailing Shop at 390 E. Chestnut Street, where authorities seized cash, records, and 13 vehicles associated with the business.

Approximately $12,000 cash was seized during the searches on Oct. 16, police said.

Investigators said the charges stemmed from an eight-month investigation that followed the arrests of more than 100 people for heroin distribution in February.

Information obtained from those arrested and other sources, surveillance of the homes and the auto repair shop, and heroin purchases made over the past eight months led to the searches, police said.

Two other York residents, 44-year-old Jorge Gallardo and 34-year-old Gerald Custodio, were arrested at J&J Auto Detailing for possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
