NYC cops, responding to a loud noise complaint, find nearly 2K packets of heroin, make arrest

What was supposed to be a routine noise complaint has turned into a significant New York City drug bust.

Police say Saturday uniformed officers knocking on the door of a third floor Queens apartment that was blasting music Friday had every intention of writing the tenant a summons.

But they say when Frank Giardina opened the door, they noticed him holding a marijuana pipe and asked him for identification. That's when they say Giardina invited them inside.

Police say when the officers spotted about five pounds of heroin on Giardina's kitchen table, they arrested him and obtained a court-issued warrant.

They say further search revealed 1,948 glassines of heroin as well as packing materials and equipment.

Giardina's been charged with multiple counts of drug possession. Attorney information wasn't immediately available.
