50 envelopes of suspected heroin in Hoffman's apartment
New York - CNN is reporting police found nearly 50 envelopes of what they believe is heroin in Philip Seymour Hoffmans apartment.
Two law enforcement sources familiar with the inquiry confirmed the information with CNN Monday.
A needle was in the actor's left arm, and police also found several empty bags branded "Ace of Hearts," a street name for heroin, in the apartment.
Investigators also found, according to the two sources:
More than 20 used syringes in a plastic cup.
Several other bags containing white powder.
Prescription drugs, including the blood-pressure medication clonidine hydrochloride; the addiction-treatment drug buprenorphine; Vyvanse, a drug used to treat attention-deficit (hyperactivity) disorder; hydroxyzine, which can be used to treat anxiety; and methocarbamol, a muscle relaxer. Authorities are investigating whether Hoffman had prescriptions for these drugs, the sources said.
