SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A prosecutor in Massachusetts says 750 bags of heroin were found stuffed inside a teddy bear in a child’s bedroom during a drug raid.

Hampden County District Attorney Anthony Gulluni said the drugs were found in a Springfield apartment on Wednesday.

Gulluni says 22-year-old Joshua Santiago was arrested and charged with drug trafficking.

Police say they also seized cocaine, drug paraphernalia, a handgun with a defaced serial number and ammunition from the apartment.

It was not immediately clear if Santiago has an attorney to comment on his behalf.
