Six residents in Suffolk were arrested and charged in a drug operation earlier this week after authorities from multiple agencies conducted four search warrants.

Four other people were also arrested in connection with the operation.

State police say they seized crack, cocaine, Oxycodone, Xanax and marijuana, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash.

Richard Figueroa is being held on $1 million bail or $3 million bond. Joann Figueroa is being held on $500,000 bail or $1.5 million bond.
