A New Jersey man was arrested Tuesday evening after police say he arrived in Pittsburgh with $20,000 worth of heroin.
Rasheed McKenith, 33, of Newark, arrived at the Amtrak station, Downtown, around 7:45 p.m. and walked across the street to the Greyhound bus station, arousing the suspicion of four city police officers in the area, police Lt. Jason Lando said.
The officers followed him into the men’s room where they saw him abandon a book bag containing 2,000 stamp bags of heroin, Lando said.
McKenith was taken to Night Court to be arraigned on charges of possession with intent to deliver heroin.
