Police seize $2.4 million worth of heroin in suburban Philadelphia drug bust


BENSALEM, Pennsylvania — Police seized $2.4 million worth of heroin after interrupting a drug buy in the parking lot of a home improvement store outside Philadelphia.

Bensalem police said they seized nearly 2 kilograms of heroin after being tipped off about the sale.

Three men were arrested Tuesday and charged with drug trafficking and related offenses. Each is being held on $1 million bail.

Bensalem Director of Public Safety Fred Harran tells the Bucks County Courier Times ( ) that the heroin was flattened out and sewn into a soft-sided briefcase. He says the briefcase was stowed in a hidden compartment under the trunk of a car.
