POUND RIDGE - Police have seized thousands of bags of heroin and other drugs from a Pound Ridge apartment.
The drug bust was made at an apartment on 31 Winterbottom Lane Monday after police stopped Kyle Caruso for a probation violation. Police say they seized almost 3,000 bags of heroin, prescription drugs, guns and knives. Caruso is an alleged drug dealer with a lengthy rap sheet.
Police also found a gun on the property that they say was stolen from a Connecticut sporting goods store. Police are investigating whether the gun could be connected to a January homicide in the Bronx.
Heroin has been a growing problem in the Hudson Valley, with officials reporting three more fatal overdoses in Putnam County over the weekend.
