Routine traffic stop leads to narcotics seizure
Sheriff’s deputies found heroin inside toolbox
LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) -A traffic stop in central Laredo leads to the discovery of hard narcotics.
The Webb County Sheriff’s Office arrested 67-year-old Javier Hernandez in the case.
The seizure happened on Wednesday at around five in the morning when sheriff’s deputies conducted a traffic stop on a black Ford F-150 between Callaghan Street and Benavides Street.
During questioning, authorities noticed the toolbox was not properly secured, so they searched it and found a suspicious-looking package.
When they opened it they found over three pounds of heroin valued at $25,0000.
Hernandez was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
