A narcotics raid near Rosehill Cemetery in Lincoln Square turned up $123,000 worth of heroin, a trove of other drugs, and two stolen handguns, prosecutors say.

Officers executed the search warrant around 3 p.m. last Wednesday in the 5300 block of North Bowmanville, forcing their way inside Justin Sharp’s basement apartment and taking him into custody.
