Exclusive: Witness: I watched Hoffman score heroin in East Village

Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman scored his smack like a common junkie, schlepping to an East Village apartment to feed his heroin fix, law-enforcement sources told The New York Post.

A witness has come forward to tell cops that several months ago, he personally eyeballed Hoffman buying the drugs himself, making the transaction at the same apartment where the witness was being supplied.

Cops — desperate to find Hoffman’s seller — took the tip so seriously that they set up surveillance on the apartment on Monday night, the day after Hoffman died.

There, cops arrested a customer who emerged from an apartment in the building, which they believe supplied the smack to Hoffman’s dealers.

But the drugs they found don’t have the “Ace of Spades,” stamp – the logo that appeared on the drug envelopes found in the $10,000-a-month Bethune Street apartment where Hoffman overdosed with a needle still in his arm Sunday.
