Investigators arrested a Fairview couple who they said were producing heroin for sale at a home up the street from an elementary school.

Jose R. Ulloa, 30, and Stephanie Picinich, 28, were charged with narcotics drug counts, including maintaining or operating a drug-production facility.

The investigation leading to Wednesday's warranted raid on the Day Avenue ranch house near Lincoln Elementary School -- and a block from the borough Board of Education building -- began last month, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said.

A judge the next day ordered both Ulloa and Picinich released with conditions pending further court action.

Musella thanked Fairview police for their work on the case.
