Elmont Couple Charged With Dealing Heroin

An Elmont couple has been arrested for selling heroin out of their apartment following a drug raid on Monday afternoon, Nassau County police said.

Narcotics/Vice Bureau detectives executed a search warrant on the couple’s Times Avenue home following an undercover operation. They found 1,534 bags of heroine, 50 pills of Alprazolam, and an undetermined amount of cash inside.

Thomas Mckinley, 53, and his 61-year-old wife, Lorraine Bianchini, were each charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance. Mckinley was additionally charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Two alleged buyers, 26-year-old Maggie Caballero of East Rockaway and 25-year-old Grant Marshall of Copiague, were arrested for heroin possession after police said they bought from the couple before the raid.

Caballero and Marshall were also charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

All four will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
