Two men have been arrested for allegedly dealing thousands of bags of heroin bought in New York City out of their Selden home where a also toddler lived, New York State police said.

Jeffrey Iarocci, 39, and 42-year-old Michael Wehle were charged with possession and sale of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, child endangerment and marijuana possession.

Narcotics Enforcement Unit investigators executed a search warrant on the suspects’ Pontiac Road after surveillance found a “high volume” of drug deals taking place in the house and driveway, police said in a news release.

The suspects also allegedly delivered heroin to their customers at various locations throughout Suffolk County, authorities said.

A 3 year-old child and her mother were living temporarily at the house, investigators added. The mother, who retained custody of the child, was not charged.

The arrest came the same day that Nassau County police made a heroin bust outside of a White Castle in Lynbrook.

Iarocci and Wehle will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip.
