NEW YORK (CNN) — Four people thought to be connected to the drugs found in late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s apartment were arrested late Tuesday night, law enforcement officials told CNN.

During the raid that yielded the arrest of the three men and one woman, police recovered 350 glassine-type bags of what is believed to be heroin, the officials said.

No additional information was released.

When police were called to Hoffman’s fourth-floor Manhattan apartment Sunday, they found the actor lying on the bathroom floor with a syringe in his left arm. He was wearing shorts and a T-shirt, his eyeglasses still resting on his head, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the inquiry.

Investigators discovered close to 50 envelopes of what they believed was heroin in the apartment, the law enforcement sources said. They also found used syringes, prescription drugs and empty glassine-type bags, the sources said.

No fentanyl found

Preliminary tests Tuesday showed the heroin recovered from the apartment does not contain fentanyl, a law enforcement official told CNN. More testing will be done.

Fentanyl is a powerful narcotic used to treat cancer patients’ pain.
