PATERSON - Police in Paterson say they have arrested two convicted felons for trying to sell drugs.

Police say 37-year-old Kahseem Allah-Shabazz, of Lodi, and 34-year-old Raul Heber, of Paterson, were arrested after they tried to sell $10,000 worth of crack cocaine.

Investigators say they first approached Shabazz, who then ran to Heber's home on East 27th Street. Inside the home, investigators say they found materials to make drugs and a large quantity of crack in Shabazz's backpack.

Investigators say Shabazz had previously served time in prison for narcotics charges.

Police have not revealed Heber's alleged criminal background.
