On Thursday night, the DEA seized millions of dollars worth of heroin during a Bronx apartment raid. 

Agents reportedly found 13 kilograms of the drug in the Williamsbridge apartment inside of bags labeled "Lady Gaga," "iPhone," "NFL" and "Olympics 2012." The best find of all? A bag branded "GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN." The drugs are estimated to be worth $8 million.

Authorities say the apartment had been under close surveillance for a while, and the raid was authorized after a suspect was seen entering the building with two bags and a green box. 

Furthermore, 18 coffee grinders, scales, baking soda, face masks and an assortment of dime bags were also discovered. Augustin Rivera, 36, and Cristino Then, 25, were arrested on drug charges.
