SAN JUAN, (AP): Authorities in Puerto Rico say they have arrested 75 people including a state police officer during an island-wide drug raid.

Police said in a statement yesterday that they arrested officer Neftali Gomez Dones after finding a large amount of heroin in an apartment in the northern municipality of Caguas. Police say they will release more details soon.

It was not immediately clear if Gomez has an attorney.

Authorities say they seized other drugs, including cocaine, marijuana and crack, as well as weapons and cars.
