The New York Police Department arrested four people on Tuesday night in connection with Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death.

As Gossip Cop has reported, the Oscar-winning actor was found dead in his apartment on Sunday after an apparent heroin overdose.

As part of the police investigation into Hoffman’s death and drug use, a search warrant was executed at an apartment on Mott Street in Manhattan.

Cops subsequently arrested three men and one woman after finding 350 glassine bags.

Dozens of bags of heroin with uncommon markings were reportedly found in Hoffman’s New York City home where he died. Earlier on Tuesday, Hoffman’s family announced plans for a funeral and memorial.
