The tweet, which calls the bust "Operation Pin Point," shows a large sack containing small bags of the drug. 

In February, 11 people were arrested in Kensington in a multi-agency initiative that led to search warrants in 13 homes and 15 vehicles. Police seized nearly $2 million worth of drugs and 170,000 doses of heroin in what was called the "Kensington Initiative."
