US police investigating the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman from an apparent drugs overdose arrested three men and a woman with a large amount of heroin, police said Wednesday.
The three men aged 22, 48 and 57, and the woman, 22, were all detained on drug-related charges, a police spokesman told AFP.
"A large amount" of heroine was found in their possession in southern Manhattan, he said.
Hoffman died on Sunday in an apparent heroin overdose, with a needle found stuck in his arm. Around 50 envelopes of heroin, syringes and other pills littered the apartment.
