Authorities said a traffic stop on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Somerset County Friday morning led state troopers to $1 million worth of heroin
in a Pittsburgh man's car.
Police said when Warren Green IV was stopped for speeding, officers
found 1,000 bricks of heroin in his car, valued at about $1 million on the street.
"Trooper Volk's actions saved so many lives. Think about how many people could have been affected by $1 million worth of heroin. This is a proud day for the Pennsylvania state police," State Police Capt. Greg Bacher said.
Green is being held in the Somerset County Jail after he was unable to post $750,000 bond on charges including possession and possession with intent to deliver heroin.
