    (Published Tuesday, March 26, 2013)

    A husband and wife have been arrested on charges they ran a heroin ring out of their Long Island home.

    Newsday says 53-year-old Thomas McKinley and his 61-year-old wife, Lorraine Bianchini, both pleaded not guilty to criminal possession of a controlled substance at their arraignment Tuesday.

    They were represented by Legal Aid Society, which does not comment on cases.

    Police raided the couple's home in Elmont on Monday and recovered more than 1,500 glassine envelopes of heroin, pills and an undetermined amount of cash. The heroin was worth between $15,000 and $30,000.

    Police say the duo were supplying to drug user and dealers, sometimes selling hundreds of bags at a time.
