Acting on informants' tips that the deadly drug originated from the Mott St. location, cops arrested the four suspected dealers -- two men in their 50s and a man and a woman in their 20s -- at around 7 p.m. and seized more than 350 bags of heroin.

Heroin isn't what everyone thinks it is in terms of life style. It's not all junkies with facial piercings and tattoos. There are office workers and students and all sort of people who use it. It could be decriminalized and regulated. RIP Phillip.

This man's addiction was common knowledge. Hoffman openly declared he was a herion addict nearly a year ago. The man is dead- this arrests are too late.

Very sad to loose such a great character actor at such a young age. A demon like heroin is very hard to entirely get rid of. I have heard that the last movie he did, had him playing the part of a drug addict, although I can't confirm this as I have not seen the movie. If this is true, it was a poor choice and also a poor choice that the producers and directors made, to have him doing this role. RIP Phillip .
I am happy they made some arrests!!
Thanks Carrie.

It's never too late to get heroin dealers off the street.

It is amazing he knew the risks but still persisted.. if only people would get a true revelation of the horrors of drugs perhaps they would do more to stop. very sad indeed

Noted & Tweeted. Thanks so much. I think he was a versatile actor that was finally being noticed. He won that award for his performance in "Capote" & now he's gone. Very sad. I think we would've seen many other brilliant performances by him......
