TOTOWA — The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office, along with federal drug agents, cracked a sophisticated drug ring in which members used secret hiding compartments to hold up to 2.5 kilograms of heroin, guns and $45,000 in cash, authorities said Monday.

County investigators and agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency raided two Newark apartments after months of surveillance over the weekend and seized up to $500,000 worth of heroin packages that authorities believed was to be delivered throughout Passaic County and North Jersey.
