4 Arrested in Connection to PSH’s Drug Overdose
New York police have arrested four people suspected of having a connection to drugs found in Philip Seymour Hoffman’s apartment, two days after the actor was found dead of an apparent drug overdose.
On Tuesday night law-enforcement officials busted four people believed to have supplied the heroin that killed the 46-year-old actor. Three men – two in their 50s and one in his 20s – and a woman in her 20s had been detained and were being questioned.
They were reportedly arrested in a Chinatown apartment on Mott Street, after police received a tip that the drugs found in Hoffman’s apartment came from the Chinatown building. Police reportedly found 350 glassine envelopes containing a substance believed to be heroin.
