Yeah, I know it’s Maryland, but still, NBC 4: Trooper Finds $4.4M Worth Of Heroin During Traffic Stop:
A Maryland state trooper seized 32 pounds of heroin worth $4.4 million on Tuesday during a traffic stop on Interstate 95 in Cecil County.
The heroin find is the largest in state police history, authorities said.
The trooper was on patrol just before 9 a.m. when he stopped a speeding Dodge Caravan minivan, officials said.
Suspecting criminal activity may be involved, the trooper called a state police drug dog, which detected the drugs, officials said.
Authorities said the trooper searched the van and found the heroin wrapped in plastic in a hidden compartment built into the engine.
The driver, Jose M. Gomez, 41, of Orlando, Fla., has been charged in federal court with importation of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute and possession of heroin.
He has been turned over to officials from the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Purely medicinal of course.
And from the Wayback Machine: Four teenagers caught with 33 pounds of marijuana.
“That’s a lot of dope, Mr. Peabody!”
