LORAIN COUNTY, Ohio--Investigators released new details at a press conference on Thursday in what they call the largest heroin bust in Lorain history.

Investigators said they made seven arrests and seized heroin with a street value of $70,000.

Right before the press conference, police announced that two additional suspects were arrested in connection to the raids.

Amber Nicole Zajac, of Lorain, is charged with conspiracy; and Tyshun Washington, of Elyria, is charged with engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity and trafficking in drugs.

Police announced five arrests on Wednesday.
