Metro police said four men arrested Friday were part of a heroin distribution network that spanned Nashville.

Armando Morales, 57; Raul Cedillo-Pena, 27; Josue Castro, 20; and Ines Lopez-Pena, 34, face federal heroin conspiracy charges after a raid at a home in the 100 block of Ocala Drive.

Officers and undercover detectives seized approximately four pounds of heroin - some of it packaged into small balloons for resale - along with $7,000 cash, six cars, $15,000 worth of assorted merchandise and a gun.

Police said buyers would call the Ocala Drive home to place an order, and drug deliveries were then made at public locations across the city, including parking lots in the area of Edmondson Pike and Old Hickory Boulevard.

Investigators ask anyone who suspects drug activity in their neighborhood to call the anonymous police hotline 244-DOPE.
