An alleged drug dealing ring based in New Jersey was shut down Wednesday. Authorities say six people are in custody and facing drug charges for dealing heroin and cocaine in Passaic County.

They were arrested after a month-long investigation, according to police. Cops say it ended when they seized nearly $350,000 worth of drugs and cash.

Police say the ring used Express Mail to receive cocaine from Puerto Rico. One of the suspects even filed a postal service complaint after one of the packages was confiscated by authorities, police added.

Authorities say 30-year-old Anthony Garcia, a.k.a "Snags," of Parsippany, was among those charged. He is the suspected drug crew leader and a reputed Bloods gang member.
