Dozens of people were arrested in what authorities are calling at a multi-county, large-scale heroin ring bust in New Jersey.

Police rounded up 31 people Tuesday following an eight-month narcotics investigation that spanned Hudson and Essex counties.

According to the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, more than 150 law enforcement officers were involved in the takedown. They seized two handguns, hollow point bullets, three vehicles, as well as various amounts of heroin, cocaine, marijuana and illegal prescription drugs.
