HOBOKEN -- Hoboken police found 300 bags of heroin in an apartment in the Hoboken Housing Authority projects over the weekend, police confirmed. Some of the bags were found in a secret compartment in the tenant's underwear.
This is the second major drug bust in recent history in the projects, although they have a long history as a site of local drug arrests (see links to related stories below).
