VALE, OR - Oregon State Police say a traffic stop on Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon yielded a surprise: five pounds of heroin packed into two Valentine's Day teddy bear gift baskets.
Lt. Gregg Hastings said Monday the heroin was valued at $200,000.
The spokesman says two young women from Phoenix, Arizona were arrested for investigation of unlawful possession and distribution of a controlled substance and booked into the Malheur County Jail.
They were identified as 22-year-old Sonla Marquez-Lozano and 20-year-old Yedid Zamudio-Vazquez.
Hastings says a senior trooper stopped the Honda Accord with Arizona license plates for failing to signal lane changes last Wednesday.
