Police say a drug raid in Ulster County turned up more than 550 bags of heroin as well as the painkiller oxycodone and drug-packaging materials.

The Ulster Regional Gang Enforcement Narcotics Team received a tip about a heroin ring run out of an apartment in the village of Ellenville and obtained a search warrant.

The narcotics officers and local police raided the apartment Thursday and found the heroin and oxycodone.

Police arrested 28-year-old Resean Mack on drug charges. He was arraigned in Town of Hurley Justice Court and jailed in lieu of $30,000 bail or $150,000 property bond.

Police say Mack is a member of the Bloods street gang.

Information on an attorney for Mack was not immediately available.
