WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains police confiscated 25 bags of what officers believe to be marijuana, one bag of what police suspect to be heroin, 500 milligrams of alleged cocaine, and an illegal knife in a narcotics investigation conducted over the weekend.

Six men were arrested in the narcotics bust, beginning with two White Plains residents taken into custody early Friday morning.

Officers arrested Thomas Saunders Jr., 21, outside his Fisher Avenue home where they found a black and silver gravity butterfly knife, and eight bags of what officers believe to be marijuana on him.

Saunders was charged with one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor, and one counts of unlawful posession of marijuana.

He was charged with one count of unlawful possession of marijuana.

On Saturday, the investigation yielded two more arrests near the intersection of S. Lexington Avenue and Dennison Street.
