Crime Tip: Drive legally when you have 347 bags of heroin in your car

Three Pennsylvania residents were arrested Wednesday following a motor vehicle stop on Route 80 after police found them in possession of 347 bags of heroin, police said Thursday.

Patrolman Matt Holland was traveling in the highway’s center lane when a 2002 Hyundai in the right lane crossed over to the center lane, forcing Holland to brake. Holland pulled over the car occupied by Jenna Nyland, 24, Ricky White, 44, and William Coates Jr., 47, all of Scranton, Pa., police said.

Holland spoke with Nyland, the driver, and a subsequent investigation determined the three people possessed 347 bags of suspected heroin, police said.

A pigeon’s behind bars after being caught smuggling drugs into a high security jail in Bosnia. The bird is a pet of one of the inmates and it’s thought tiny bags containing heroin had been tied to its legs.

Wardens at Zenica prison grew suspicious when they noticed four prisoners becoming “visibly intoxicated” shortly after the pigeon was spotted landing on a window-ledge.
