FARMINGVILLE, N.Y. -- Suffolk County police say eight people, including a father and his son, have been arrested on drug charges.

Newsday reports that Richard Bruno, Sr. and his 26-year-old son Richard Bruno, Jr. were arrested earlier this month and were accused of dealing heroin and cocaine in suburban New York.

Police tell Newsday much of the heroin was stashed at the Bruno's home in Farmingville, New York.

The arrests come after an investigation with New York State Police investigators and the district attorney's heroin task force. Authorities seized drugs and illegal guns in the probe.

The Brunos and the other suspects were being held pending a court appearance and it wasn't clear whether they had attorneys.
