LYNN — Two men were arrested on drug trafficking charges following a Tuesday morning drug raid where police seized a large amount of heroin, cocaine and marijuana from their Beacon Hill Avenue apartment, state police said. 

Irvine McConney Jr., 22, and Alex Poisson, 18, of 21 Beacon Hill Ave., were charged with heroin trafficking, and crack cocaine and marijuana possession with intent to distribute.
