JASPER COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A traffic stop early Sunday morning resulted in the seizure of more than five pounds of suspected heroin.
It happened around 8 Sunday morning on southbound Interstate 65, near the Remington exit.
Indiana State Police (ISP) troopers said they pulled a man over for speeding, and noticed he was acting suspicious.
ISP says K-9s searched the car of 26-year-old Pedro Burgos and located four packages of suspected heroin. Police said the street value of the packages is about $150,000.
Burgos, who is from Miami, has been booked into the Jasper County Jail. He faces preliminary charges of dealing a narcotic drug, possession of a narcotic drug and speeding.
