Four people thought to be connected to the drugs found in late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman's apartment were arrested late Tuesday.
A law enforcement official said a raid led to the arrest of the three men and one woman.
In the raid, police say they recovered 350 bags or envelopes which may be used to contain heroin.
Hoffman was found in his fourth-floor Manhattan apartment Sunday.
Police found the actor lying on the bathroom floor with a syringe in his left arm.
Law enforcement sources said investigators discovered close to 50 envelopes of what they believed was heroin in the apartment. They also found used syringes and prescription drugs.

If you play an instrument, you may have noticed something curious about the Red Hot Chili Peppers' instruments during their Super Bowl performance - they weren't plugged in. 
Turns out, while the vocals were live, the music wasn't. 
In a letter posted on their official website, RHCP bassist Flea says "it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums and guitar would be pre-recorded."
"I understand the NFL's stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there [are] a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound ... there was not any room for argument on this." 
The band says they don't mime music, but under the circumstances, had no choice.
