State police made a drug bust in Hartford on Tuesday and said they found 1,700 bags of heroin bagged for sale, as well as some cocaine.

After obtaining four court-ordered arrest warrants for Jose Guzman, 44. and his apartment at 1912 Broad Street, apt. 1N, in Hartford, the Statewide Narcotics Task Force conducted a search on Tuesday.

During the investigation, police developed a lead on a second major distribution point of 755 Wethersfield Ave. Apt. A12, police said.

Between the two locations, police said they seized around 2 grams of cocaine, more than $600 in U.S. currency and around 1,700 bags of heroin packaged for street sales. 

Guzman was arrested around 7 p.m. charged with four counts sale of narcotics, four counts of possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.

He is being held on a $1 million bond and is due in court on May 22.
