ATHENS TOWNSHIP — Some of the amounts of drugs seized in last week’s Valley-wide drug bust were released Wednesday by the Athens Township Police Department.

• 28.7 grams of heroin

• 66.2 grams of marijauna

• over 50 prescription pills.

Clink added that the approximate street value of the drugs collected is $27,000.
