GENESEO, N.Y. — Authorities say they've seized nearly 800 bags of heroin during two separate traffic stops and a house search this week in a rural western New York county.

The Livingston County Sheriff's Office tells local media that a total of 430 bags of heroin were discovered during separate traffic stops on Interstate 390. Officials say another 350 bags were found during a search of the Mount Morris home of one of the people pulled over earlier this week along rural stretches of I-390 south of Rochester.

Four men have been charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Officials say the other three suspects are from Olean. Police say two of the suspects told police they had purchased the drugs in Rochester.
