NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities have charged 18 alleged members of a Bronx drug gang for selling fentanyl-laced heroin believed to be responsible for at least five overdose deaths.

Local and federal law enforcement raided several locations in the Bronx on Tuesday, seizing three kilograms of heroin, about $300,000 in cash and a loaded firearm.
