An upstate sheriff, angered by dope dealers in his rural county, helped dismantle a New York drug ring as officials seized $5 million in heroin and $115,000 cash.

The ringleader and four underlings were busted Thursday at a heroin-packaging mill inside an apartment on W. 238th St. in the Bronx, said Bridget Brennan, the city’s special narcotics prosecutor.

The investigation kept 1 million bags of heroin off the streets of New York, Long Island and Westchester, Sullivan, Orange and Albany counties, Brennan said.

The operation’s boss was identified as Orlando Rosario-Concepcion, 38, of Paterson, N.J. The suspect and his associate Rodolofo Abreu-Cristomo jumped out a window when cops burst into the Bronx apartment — but both were quickly cuffed, a prosecutor said.

Concepcion was jailed after a safe containing $70,000 and a “heroin ledger” with business records was discovered in his Jersey home.
