Duluth police have arrested a man they say is a "significant distributor" of heroin in the city.

According to authorities, Antonio Dantinue Long, 38, was arrested on Thursday, following an afternoon search of a home on the 300 block of North 7th Avenue East. They said they also found 34 grams of heroin, 33 grams of crack cocaine, a stolen handgun and other evidence of drug sales.

Duluth Police Department Public Information Officer Jim Hansen tells Eyewitness News that Long's arrest was the result of Operation Exile, a Minnesota heroin bust in which more than 60 people were arrested in April.

In a news conference at the Public Safety Building Monday afternoon, Lt. Steve Stracek said Duluth police were involved in the arrest of 29 of those people, but that they're still searching for 12 people with outstanding warrants.

Long was lodged at the St. Louis County Jail for 1st Degree Sale of Heroin, 1st Degree Sale of Crack Cocaine, 2 counts of 3rd Degree Sale of Heroin, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm, police said. They said he has since been formally charged by prosecutors.
