Authorities say they have seized more than $400,000 in opioids and painkillers that were shipped from India to a home in New Jersey.
Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri says his office received information about the shipment from U.S. Homeland Security.
Members of the county's narcotics task force were waiting when the package arrived at a home in Hamilton Township on Nov. 1. Authorities found 12,000 Tramadol pills, 2,000 Tapentadol pills, 530 Oxycodone pills and 20 bags of heroin.
The woman who took delivery of the shipment was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession with intent to distribute it.
